TransLink’s Brighouse Decorative Crosswalk in Richmond is in the final stages of completion. Part of the improvements were the installation of TrafficPatternsXD crosswalks pithing the development area and across No. 3 Road.
TrafficPatternsXD – Durable Crosswalks and Traffic Calming Devices incorporate a specialized preformed thermoplastic material manufactured by Ennis Flint – North America’s largest supplier of roadway markings and paint. TrafficPatternsXD incorporates a unique aggregate-reinforced formula with unprecedented wear resistance. The result is a traffic-tough decorative asphalt pavement surface that provides brick or paving stone like aesthetic without the maintenance issues.
TrafficPatternsXD™ helps to:
High Skid/Slip Resistant for Safety
The factory-applied aggregate within the material and additional site surface applied aggregate provides excellent skid/slip resistance. Because anti-skid material is embedded throughout the material, as it slowly wears, new anti-skid elements are exposed.
Means minimal traffic and community disruption – stamped asphalt crosswalks installed and open to traffic in a matter of hours not days or weeks.
TrafficPatternsXD™ is field proven over many years in Canadian roadways and designed for extreme high traffic and weather conditions crosswalks and traffic calming device surfaces.
