TECHNIQUES FOR REDUCING ROADWAY OCCUPANCY DURING ROUTINE MAINTENANCE ACTIVITIES

The objective of this research was to develop procedures for improving the safety of maintenance operations by identifying methods of reducing the time of occupancy of the roadway by maintenance crews during bridge deck repairs, pavement patching, crack and joint sealing, and mudjacking. The report organizes the specific activities into tasks and identifies techniques for accomplishment of each. Procedures are described for organizing and managing maintenance activities to minimize roadway occupany time. Major occupancy time reductions appear to result from elimination of delay time and minimizing traffic control and curing time rather than reduction in work time requirements. /Author/
