Work Zone Split Traffic Symbol Sign

Missouri Department of Transportation's St. Louis District has gotten Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) approval to do a pilot project using a new work zone sign. The sign is used when work is done in the middle of the roadway and lanes shift around the work zone. Currently two Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) signs are required, one on either side of the road. The sign being piloted shows all information on one sign. A field evaluation is being done to monitor driver reaction and traffic delays. Quarterly Progress (Jan-Mar 2016): The request for proposals was posted February 29, 2016. The project proposals are due on April 2, 2016 and a team will be selected in late April. Quarterly Progress (Apr-Jun 2016): The project proposals were received on April 7, 2016. The technical advisory team met on April 18th and selected the team from the University of Missouri-Columbia and CBB. The task order was executed on May 16, 2016. On May 18, 2016 the research team and MoDOT Research project manager went to the preconstruction meeting in Maryland Heights to discuss the research part of the construction project.
