SPR-4409: Safety, Mobility, and Cost Benefits of Closing One Direction of Interstate in Rural Areas During Construction Work

Contractors have been pushing for more safety either by closing sections or placing barrier walls along the length of the project. Project deliverables will be guidelines that help to determine (1) where it is beneficial to close interstates, (2) what needs to be added prior to projects such as extra lanes, widening structures, increasing truck radii, signal timing, etc., and (3) what it is an acceptable user cost and necessary liquidated damages for the contractor to complete on time.
