16. Abstract

This Guide consisting of samples, templates, and tips is designed to help transportation agencies with the development and implementation of their own Transportation Management Plans (TMPs). Understanding the work zone impacts is critical to developing effective work zone TMPs that provide for adequate safety and mobility for the traveling public and construction workers. The primary intended audience for this guide is transportation agency staff, including technical staff, (planners, designers, traffic engineers, highway/safety engineers, etc); management and executive-level staff responsible for setting policy and program direction; field staff responsible for building projects and managing work zones; and staff responsible for assessing performance in these areas. The TMP samples and templates presented in the guide represent two projects with different levels of impacts.

  • Template 1 and Sample 1—Projects with minor-to-moderate level of impacts.
  • Template 2 and Sample 2—Projects with moderate-to-major level of impacts.
