Work Zone Intrusion Report Interface Design

The goal of the research effort is to provide a work zone incident reporting system that will be accepted by workers, both advancing Minnesota TZD policies and providing critical information to various state agencies involved in reducing unsafe driving environments around work zones in Minnesota. The objectives of this research are: (1) to establish a sound methodology for work zone intrusion reporting that accurately provides a holistic understanding of intrusion characteristics, setting a national standard for work zone reporting; (2) to design a web-based application to document work zone incidents (e.g. report intrusions and public or internal crashes which damage property) with the capability to identify when video is available from existing Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL), Maintenance Decision Support System (MDSS) or other Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) managed cameras; and 3) to provide critical data insight into the intrusion attributes and contributing factors that allow for policy or procedural action.
