Transportation Management Plan (TMP) Examples
A TMP lays out a set of strategies for managing the work zone impacts of a project. Because work zone objectives, needs, and issues vary from project to project, the scope, content, and degree of detail in a TMP will also vary. It is ultimately up to individual agencies to establish and implement TMPs that best serve the mobility and safety needs of the motoring public, construction workers, businesses, and community.
Section 630.1012 of the Work Zone Safety and Mobility Rule states that for significant projects the State shall develop a TMP that consists of a Temporary Traffic Control (TTC) plan and addresses both Transportation Operations (TO) and Public Information (PI) components. For individual projects or classes of projects that the State determines to have less than significant work zone impacts, the TMP may consist only of a TTC plan. However, States are encouraged to also consider TO and PI issues for these projects.
Many States have recognized the benefits of developing and implementing TMPs or similar plans. The sample TMPs, TMP development resources, and lane closure policy examples in the following links are meant to assist agencies with developing their own TMPs and TMP strategies for mitigating work zone impacts.
