Traffic Control in Work Zones
Urban Work Zone Design-Grant Course

View course
This course covers the considerations necessary to address work zones in urban environments, which may involve restricted spaces, lack of buffer space, parking issues, limited sight distance, business access, and pedestrians and bicyclist considerations. The course covers instances when standards cannot be met and how to address these situations. Freeways are not covered. Classroom 1

Work Zone Strategies-Grant Course

View course
This course will discuss non-typical strategies available to work zone designers. It will focus on strategies specifically designed to improve work zone safety and mobility, such as full closures, variable speed limits, impact analysis, and enforcement. The FHWA Work Zone Safety and Mobility Final Rule will be discussed. Classroom 2

Strategies for Developing Work Zone Traffic Analyses

View course
Provides an overview of how traffic analysis tools can be applied specifically to work zone analysis problems. The purpose of this course is three-fold. First, it will educate the participants regarding the constraints and opportunities of work zone analysis associated with available transportation modeling approaches. Second, it will build familiarity with the various work zone factors influencing the selection of a transportation modeling approach. Third, it will provide the participants with practical experience in developing a transportation modeling approach in a collaborative process that considers issues ranging from work zone characteristics, performance measurement, technical risk assessment, and resource constraints. Participants will be able to characterize a work zone and select and justify a transportation modeling approach based upon the work zone characterization. Online 6

Guidelines on Work Zone Access and Egress

View document
Describes concerns associated with work zone access and egress. The document offers recommended practices and describes effective strategies and techniques that can be employed during the planning, design and construction phases to help mitigate concerns. The document addresses work zone access and egress problems, when to consider access and egress, acceleration and deceleration of construction vehicles, maintaining access and egress points, controlling traffic inside the work zone, and innovative ideas and best practices.
