C-01-61 Frequency of Accidents on Construction Contracts

Records are kept of accidents near and in construction zones. This data is currently analyzed by type, severity, and frequency to guide emphasis areas for construction safety program. Additional analysis based on contractor payments, traffic volumes, location (urban vs. rural) and other factors may provide insights into safety issues. A specific, detailed analysis into rear-end collisions is a priority. These studies would guide evaluation of the value of potential programs intended to reduce construction zone related accidents. Primary benefits would be to the traveling public and contractors.
