Impacts of Connected Vehicles and Automated Vehicles on State and Local Transportation Agencies--Task-Order Support. Best Practices in Work Zones for AVs and CVs

The objective of this research is to document best work zone practices for automated vehicles, connected vehicles, and vehicles using both technologies. These practices should include the physical characteristics of the work zone that the vehicle senses and the digital information supplied to the vehicle (including through the FHWA’s Work Zone Data Initiative). The best practices should cover the range from major construction projects to maintenance work zones (e.g., pothole filling) to moving maintenance activities (e.g., striping) to utility activities. As appropriate, the deliverables should discuss applicability to similar situations such as incident management and other lane closures. Whenever possible, information should be provided to allow agencies to evaluate the return on investment for alternative designs.
