Traditional traffic marking materials (solvent-borne paints) are a source of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. The study was conducted to evaluate alternative traffic marking techniques that can be used to reduce VOC emissions from this source. The document provides information on traffic marking application processes, VOC emissions and emission reductions, and costs associated with the alternative marking techniques. The primary conclusions from the study are: (1) the use of available low-and zero-VOC alternatives can result in VOC emission reductions ranging from 15% to 100%; (2) the annualized costs for the alternative marking techniques are less than or equivalent to those for traditional solvent-borne paints; and (3) the performance of the alternative markings is equivalent to or better than that of traditional solvent-borne paints.
