PROCEEDINGS OF THE SYMPOSIUM ON WORK ZONE TRAFFIC CONTROL. FINAL REPORT

Fatalities from motor vehicle accidents in work zones continue to increase. To improve safety and efficiency of day-to-day maintenance and operations of work zones, the Federal Highway Administration sponsored a two-day symposium, "Work Zone Traffic Control Symposium--Making It Work," in Orlando, Florida, on January 18-19, 1991. Gathered at the symposium were representatives from Federal agencies, States, cities, counties, industry, and foreign countries. The purpose of the symposium was to disseminate information on state-of-the-art procedures, practices, and equipment for making work zone traffic control work for motorists, pedestrians, and workers on freeways, city and suburban streets, and rural roads. A wide spectrum of topics was covered, including the new Part VI of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, contracting procedures, training, speed control techniques and devices, tort liability, planning and scheduling lane closures, and public information campaigns. The symposium included break-out sessions where the attendees became program participants by sharing their experiences and procedures for improved work zone traffic control. The symposium culminated with a tour of the annual trade exhibit of the American Traffic Safety Services Association that was held at a nearby hotel.
