Figure 8. Work Zone Decision-Making Process

Figure 8 is a flow chart illustrating the three stages of the decision-making process, that is, planning, preliminary engineering/design, and construction. Each stage is represented by a flow chart with three circles representing application, scheduling, and Transportation Management Plan (TMP). The decision-making process evolves over time, and the decisions made in the initial stage will have a direct impact on forthcoming stages. The evolution of modeling opportunities and data requirements that accompanies the process is also captured.
