Michigan's LTAP is providing local agencies with the option to borrow its Delta®RetroSign GR3 retroreflectometer. This retroreflectometer can be used as part of a program for maintaining sign retroreflectivity levels as required by the Federal Highway Administration. Local agencies can borrow the equipment for a period of up to two weeks. There is no rental fee, but borrowing agencies are responsible for shipping and insurance costs.

Borrowing and Training Requirements 
Anyone using the retroreflectometer must sign and adhere to a loan agreement, and view a training video prior to using the equipment.
