Rumble Strips and Rumble Stripes

Welcome to the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Rumble Strips and Rumble Stripes website. This site contains information about longitudinal center line, edge line, and shoulder rumble strips and stripes.

What's New: There is a Final Report that documents the entire project that resulted in the new Decision Support Guide, which can be used in conjunction with the existing implementation guides. The Minnesota Sinusoidal Rumble Strip Design Optimization Study and an NCHRP Synthesis have been added to the Research links.
