PEDESTRIAN CONSIDERATIONS IN HIGHWAY WORK ZONES

Guidelines for accommodating pedestrians in work zones are presented, which are based on field studies (at several work-zone sites) to identify current practices and deficiencies in pedestrian considerations and to develop guidelines for safe pedestrian accommodation in work-zone environments. Conditions for pedestrian accommodation are reviewed, and the types of pedestrian pathways (existing pathway, bypass, detour) and their requirements are listed. A checklist for pedestrian planning in work zones (planning considerations, information needs, pedestrian pathway considerations, sidewalk closure and blockage, pedestrian protection, inspection and maintenance) is provided.
