Airfield markings are critical visual cues and are vital for runways and taxiways. During airfield construction projects, it is often required to remove or obliterate the existing pavement markings and apply temporary markings. These methods can leave scarring that is visible on the airfield for years. Such traces of former markings can be mistaken for active airfield markings by pilots and ground personnel.
The TRB Airport Cooperative Research Program's ACRP Research Report 247: Airfield Pavement Markings: Effective Techniques for Removal and Temporary Applications provides airport operators with methods and procedures for removing old airfield markings as well as applying temporary markings.
Supplemental to the report is the Contractor's Final Report on the project.
