Why isn’t N.C. DOT required to put reflective paint around traffic islands?

The N.C. Department of Transportation does install reflective thermo markings on monolithic concrete islands, said Jessi Booker, an assistant division traffic engineer for the N.C. Department of Transportation’s Division 3.

Typically, the markings are not used on planted islands, where pavement markings are installed on the asphalt around the island.

“These markings can deteriorate over time and cause the reflectivity to diminish. Please let us know if there are specific locations of concern and we can refresh the markings as necessary,” Booker said.

The N.C. DOT Division 3 phone number is (910) 341-2000.
