It is at the City’s sole discretion to determine the locations where mechanical extrusion or spray road marking materials shall be applied and the quantity of mechanical extrusion or spray material.

The Contractor is to provide a guarantee that all markings laid under this specification will perform to the standards as outlined in Section 5 (c), Material Performance for a minimum of twelve (12) months for spray pavement markings and twenty four (24) months Screed/Mechanical markings.
