As demand increases on our nation's highways, and many reconstruction projects are underway, agencies are implementing processes and strategies to mitigate the impacts caused by work zones. As more and more practitioners are seeking information on such potential strategies, the FHWA has established the Work Zone Safety and Mobility Peer-to-Peer Program (WZ P2P) to facilitate the exchange of information among practitioners to help stimulate improvements toward making work zones work better.

How does the WZ P2P work?

The WZ P2P can provide short-term assistance to agencies interested in the application of methods, tools, and strategies to improve work zone safety and mobility. The WZ P2P provides State and Local transportation agencies easy access to knowledgeable peers across a range of work zone issues, at no cost to these agencies. Assistance is available from practitioners who have expertise in work zone topic areas and have lessons learned and success stories to share from their own experiences. This assistance will in turn help agencies and the traveling public realize the benefits of improved safety and mobility in and around work zones. The WZ P2P brochure (HTML, PDF 417KB) provides additional information.
