Prep-Before-Stripe Workshop Survey

“Prep-Before-Stripe” Workshop Survey

Feb 2, 2016 (8:30 am to 10:00 am)

Announcement: You are invited to participate in the first ever, “Prep-Before-Stripe” Workshop, February 2, 2016 from 8:30 am to 10:00 am, at the Convention Center in New Orleans.

Session Title: “Before the Striping: Roadway Surface Preparation – a time-consuming service that’s worth a charge because it extends the life of the pavement marking.”

Workshop description: Many times, a striper will be awarded a contract only to find out that the surface preparation phase is much more demanding during the project than what was called out in the contract plans.

As a result, time, money, and manpower are utilized – often without financial compensation – to adequately prepare the surface for the pavement-marking application.

The workshop will discuss (1) the time and effort that goes into properly preparing a roadway surface before the pavement marking is applied, (2) why it should be a critical first phase of any pavement-marking job and (3) should surface preparation be a separate pay item in striping contracts.

Call to Action: If you will be attending the workshop or not, please answer these 10 survey questions.  Thank you.
