TSMO and Automation in Work Zones

In a time when there is a workforce shortage in the area of highway construction and an increase in distracted driving, speeding, and work zone crashes, there is a need to identify strategies that can benefit both areas. This research project is requested to identify implementable Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSMO) strategies that benefit both areas of workforce shortage and safety to be incorporated into Missouri work zones on and off system. The goal of this research is to identify TSMO strategies available, examples of their use, demonstration in Missouri work zones, determination of their effectiveness, and a final list of recommended strategies with construction ready language to be incorporated into future projects.
