Longitudinal linear pavement markings (lane lines, edge lines, etc.) shall have the beginning and end of the line stationed on the plans. The station shall reference the roadway control line the pavement marking runs most parallel with. If a parallel alignment is not available for longitudinal lines, an offset shall be provided along with the station. All stations shall be to the nearest foot with a +/- suffix.
Transverse pavement markings (stop bars, yield bars, crosswalk lines, etc.) shall be stationed with the roadway control line most perpendicular to the transverse markings. If the transverse line is perpendicular to the control line, only one station is required. Otherwise station both ends of the transverse line. Provide the callout to the transverse line at the end of the station line.
The beginning and end of all mainline and ramp tapers shall be stationed with a BEGIN TAPER or END TAPER note supplementing the stationing. Stationing for turn lane tapers are not required unless there is a line type change.
Pavement marking lines that tie into existing pavement marking lines at the beginning or end of construction limits shall be labeled with a station as described above and a note reading “TIE TO EXISTING".
Characters and Symbols are not required to be stationed if they are placed per the NCDOT RSD. Any characters and symbols not per standard shall be stationed.
Label and station all existing and proposed beginning and end of bridge approach slabs regardless of if the pavement marking types transitions at the bridge approach slab.
Stationing CAD shall be active within the individual Pavement Marking Plan Sheets CAD files.
