1 Taxiway Identification and Sign & Marking Plan Development and Implementation Best Practices Joseph R. Shell, C.M. Delta Airport Consultants, Inc.

2 Key Components of an Effective Taxiway Identification and Sign & Marking Plan Correctness of existing information Your plan is only as good as the information you gather Adherence of planned development to advisory circulars Develop a culture of verification Consistency and clarity of plan drafting If it can not be read - it can not be reviewed

3 Correctness of Existing Information Use recent aerial photo & planimetrics Obtain recent photo of each sign Note differing types of pavement Note condition of existing markings and signs

4 Adherence of planned development to advisory circulars AC 150/5340-1K, Change 1 Standards for Airport Markings -Runway Threshold Markings 20 feet from Runway Threshold -Runway Center Line Marking constraints -Holding Position Markings extend beyond Edge Stripe -Holding Position Markings on shoulder - ADGs V and VI -Center Surface Painted Marking - ADGs I and II

5 Standards for Airport Markings Runway Threshold Old WayNew Way

6 Adherence of planned development to advisory circulars AC 150/5340-1K, Change 1 Standards for Airport Markings -Runway Threshold Markings 20 feet from Runway Threshold -Runway Center Line Marking constraints -Holding Position Markings extend beyond Edge Stripe -Holding Position Markings on shoulder - ADGs V and VI -Center Surface Painted Marking - ADGs I and II

7 Standards for Airport Markings Centerline Marking Adjustments

8 Adherence of planned development to advisory circulars AC 150/5340-1K, Change 1 Standards for Airport Markings -Runway Threshold Markings 20 feet from Runway Threshold -Runway Center Line Marking constraints -Holding Position Markings extend beyond Edge Stripe -Holding Position Markings on shoulder - ADGs V and VI -Center Surface Painted Marking - ADGs I and II

9 Standards for Airport Markings Holding Position Marking at TW Edge Old WayNew Way

10 Adherence of planned development to advisory circulars AC 150/5340-1K, Change 1 Standards for Airport Markings -Runway Threshold Markings 20 feet from Runway Threshold -Runway Center Line Marking constraints -Holding Position Markings extend beyond Edge Stripe -Holding Position Markings on shoulder - ADGs V and VI -Center Surface Painted Marking - ADGs I and II

11 Standards for Airport Markings Holding Position Marking onto Shoulder

12 Adherence of planned development to advisory circulars AC 150/5340-1K, Change 1 Standards for Airport Markings -Runway Threshold Markings 20 feet from Runway Threshold -Runway Center Line Marking constraints -Holding Position Markings extend beyond Edge Stripe -Holding Position Markings on shoulder - ADGs V and VI -Center Surface Painted Marking - ADGs I and II

13 Standards for Airport Markings Surface Painted Holding Position Marking > 35’ TW

14 Adherence of planned development to advisory circulars AC 150/ F, Standards for Airport Sign Systems -Vehicle roadway/runway holding position sign (still not finalized by the FAA) AC 150/ J, Specifications for Runway and Taxiway Signs -Contains the characteristics for lighted and unlighted signs

15 Consistency & Clarity of Plan Drafting Create a single digital file to avoid errors Complete plan in color to match filed conditions Use hatch on all pavements Create dynamic blocks/library of parts Design for multiple uses
