G3−1: Requiring a Traffic Control Supervisor
Contractors on large freeway projects must have a certified worksite traffic control supervisor on the job when lanes are closed or other work zone−related activities are being performed. The work zone traffic supervisor must document daily operations and perform weekend inspections of the work zone.
REASON(S) FOR ADOPTING:
Poor quality of traffic control and operations was evident in work zones. Contractor personnel were not adequately trained on the basics of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).
Improved quality of work zone operations.
MOST APPLICABLE LOCATION(S)/PROJECT(S):
Large freeways projects.
