FDOT State Kit
« on: September 28, 2017, 10:13:29 am »
Anyone here use the state kit for striping plans? If so can you tell me the correct way to use the Pavement Marking Tool? (see image) What the tool creates and what the Index calls for seem to be different.

Another example. The bottom section was created using the ARRAY command.

Permastripe of Florida has an example. Not sure if this is what you are looking for.

Hi Mark,

You could verify if it is perpendicular distance or not through mutcd.

Regards,

The FDOT dude maintains a youtube channel that covers most of their custom tools:

Looks like the program is written to use the perpendicular distance to get the horizontal distance. Is there anything in the Florida specs that says the width of parking stalls must be 7' minimum? Looks like that is the governing value. Either way, the program appears to be asking for the wrong info. The reason for their silence may be they are having to deal with an "Ooopsie" or some programmer is playing serious CYA.
