Appendix B - Work Zone Management Strategies Matrix
The information contained in this appendix is intended to support transportation agencies in the selection of work zone management strategies described in Section 2.2.1, Step 4 and Section 3.7 of this document. For the various work zone impact management strategies described in Section 4.0 of this document, Table B.1 presents some guidance for which strategies are anticipated to lead to an improvement in mobility or safety (motorist and worker), what project characteristics may trigger a strategy for consideration, pros and cons associated with the strategy, and other considerations. There may be exceptions; this is intended as guidance. The organization of the matrix is based on a compendium of options table contained in Ohio DOT's Policy No.: 516-003(P) – Traffic Management in Work Zones Interstate and Other Freeways document.
Some of the typical project characteristics that should be considered when selecting work zone impact management strategies for a project include:
- Facility type (freeway, highway).
- Area type (urban, rural).
- Project length.
- Project duration.
- Multiple construction stages/phasing.
- Traffic volume.
- Capacity reductions.
- Expected delay.
- Crash rate.
- Percentage of trucks.
- Available detour route(s).
- Available alternative travel modes.
- Community factors (public exposure, business impacts, and residential impacts).
