Construction Project Administration and Management for Mitigating Work Zone Accidents and Fatalities

This research effort explores possible strategies for mitigating work zone fatalities and accidents through innovative construction project administration and management. The objective of such mitigation strategies is to address work zone safety risks before construction starts. Possible strategies for investigation include project delivery methods, innovative contracting, alternative approaches to construction scheduling, and using technology to enhance work zone setup (e.g. 3D modeling, visualization, animation). The objective of this research is to explore strategies for mitigating work zone fatalities and accidents before construction starts through construction project administration and management. Potential strategies will be identified through a literature review and interviews with transportation industry experts. The final deliverable of this study will be a listing of possible strategies, including a description of each strategy and description of how each strategy may impact a work zone.
