Estimating System and Traveler Costs Due to Lane Closures During Construction and Maintenance Operations

Lane closures are used to facilitate activities related to construction and maintenance/operations. However, there are economic costs associated with lane closures and these may accrue to both the traveling public as well as to traffic agencies. While it is sometimes necessary to prohibit lane closures during the day to alleviate traffic congestion, there are consequences of this decision related to project delivery timelines, construction costs, and safety within the work zone. The Nebraska Governor’s office has identified maximizing the effectiveness of lane closures as a priority for Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT).
