Traffic Control and Work Zone Safety for High Volume Roads

Traffic control guidelines provided in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTDC) for high-volume multi-lane roadways are limited as MUTCD mainly addresses work performed along the centerline of the roadways and low speed roads." Therefore, there is a need to develop safety guidelines and recommendations for traffic control; and work zone safety on high-volume roads for the special group of New Jersey New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) employees. This goal can be achieved by performing the following steps: (1) The review of current practices being used by other states (2) The review of new and emerging technologies (3) The assessment of the technologies (4) The development of work zone control guidelines and recommendations for temporary traffic control.
