Work Zone Safety and Mobility Policy Examples

Development and implementation of an agency work zone policy is at the heart of the Work Zone Safety and Mobility Rule. Section 630.1006 of the Rule requires agencies to develop a policy that facilitates the systematic consideration of work zone safety and mobility across all stages of project development, and to work in partnership with FHWA to develop and implement the policy. The policy should help transportation agencies institutionalize planning, design, and operational strategies for reducing work zone congestion and crashes to address the safety and mobility needs of road users and workers. More information can be found in Implementing the Rule on Work Zone Safety and Mobility.

Examples of State work zone policies and policy implementation guidance, developed to meet the requirements of 23 CFR 630 Subpart J and 23 CFR 630 Subpart K, can be found in the policy library on this page. These examples provide agencies with information about what other States are doing and ideas for enhancing their own work zone policy and guidance.
