Traffic Control and Work Zone Safety for High Volume Roads

The traffic control guidelines provided in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTDC) for high volume multi-lane roadways are limited at best since MUTCD mainly addresses “work performed along the centerline of roadways and low speed roads”. More importantly, MUTDC guidelines do not specifically and adequately “address the needs of temporary work zone control needed by NJDOT inspectors and surveyors” who survey or inspect high speed, high volume roadways and who are asked conduct their work mainly in a quickly changing work environment.

RITS team will develop work zone control guidelines and recommendations to achieve the safety of NJDOT surveyors and inspectors how work at high volume, high speed roadways.
