Pavement markings and road signage are essential. This is necessary to ensure that drivers receive the information they require to obey traffic regulations and navigate the road system safely and efficiently. In this light, the researchers conducted an inventory and evaluation of the road signages and pavement markings of roads under the jurisdiction of DPWH Nueva Ecija II Engineering District Office. The general aim of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of road signages in pavement markings in selected roads under the jurisdiction of the aforementioned agency using the determination of the Road Signage Performance Index (RSPI) and Road Markings Performance Index (RMPI) through the use of field inventory technique. The results revealed that the Cabanatuan City to Nueva Ecija-Bulacan Boundary Arch Road, the RSPI and RMPI is 4.165 and 4.058, respectively. The Bongabon-Rizal-Aurora Road revealed an RSPI and RMPI of 4.622 and 4.833, respectively. Lastly, the Cabanatuan City – Carmen Road revealed a performance index for road signs of 3.923 and for pavement markings, 3.889. This indicates a performance of excellent, excellent, and very good, respectively. The study then concluded that overall, the performance of DPWH Nueva Ecija II Engineering District Office in terms of its road signs and pavement markings is Excellent.
