Research for AASHTO Standing Committee on Highways. Task 416. Alternative Technologies for Mitigating the Risk of Injuries and Deaths in Work Zones

The objective of this project is to provide guidelines on use of work zone intrusion mitigation technologies by (1) identifying successful applications of emerging technologies to mitigate work zone intrusions (hereafter, work zone intrusion technologies or WZITs); and (2) developing a technology implementation guidebook that helps transportation agencies select and implement emerging technologies to prevent work zone intrusions, and ultimately improve work zone safety.
