Abstract: Smallrural communities located along major state or county roadways typically findmost of the traffic along their main thoroughfares is pass-through rather thanlocal traffic. Unfortunately, drivers passing through these communities oftenenter at high rates of speeds, which are often significantly higher than thespeed limit of the local segment. Speed management in rural areas requiresdifferent considerations compared to urban areas and, within the US, ruralspeed management is not as advanced with little experience or guidance foragencies to draw on. This paper summarizes the results of a study thatevaluated, in part, several different types of transverse pavement markingswithin the speed transition zones in small rural communities. Three different countermeasureswere evaluated: converging chevrons, transverse lane markings, and opticalspeed bars.
