EVALUATION OF TRAFFIC CONTROL PLANS AT RECONSTRUCTION SITES. FINAL REPORT
A considerable amount of time and effort are being spent by Department personnel to prepare Traffic Control Plans (TCPs). Thus, there is a need to evaluate TCP procedures and identify needed improvement. In addition, the complexity of reconstruction work zones requires that a variety of traffic handling approaches both standard and innovative be utilized. Toward these ends, data were collected by a series of visits to several work zone sites in Texas, interviews with numerous District personnel, review of several TCPs for worksites in Texas and several field studies. Also, the study staff worked with District 12 (Houston) in organizing a Special Traffic Handling Crew, and in developing and implementing work zone traffic management strategies.
