WBMA Petitions FHWA on Behalf of Members

On Tuesday the Water Barrier Manufactures Association petitioned the Federal Highway Association about Section 6F.63 of the 2009 MUTCD. Section 6F.63 allows the name and telephone number of the highway agency, contractor, or supplier to be displayed on the non-reflective surface of a device as indicated in paragraphs 15 and 16 of this section:

Option:

15. The name and telephone number of the highway agency, contractor, or supplier may be displayed on the non-retroreflective surface of all types of channelizing devices.

Standard:

16. The letters and numbers of the name and telephone number shall be non-retroreflective and not over2 inches in height.

"The Water Barrier Manufacturers’ Association, on behalf of its manufacturing members, would like to formally petition the FHWA to allow the embossing of manufacturers logos on the face of channelizing devices. These logos, if located where there will be no reflective tape, would be nearly invisible to a passing motorist." - Marc Christensen, Executive Director of WBMA

Attached is the letter that was submitted on Tuesday.
