INVESTIGATION OF PROCEDURE FOR PASSIVE CONTROL OF VEHICLE SPEEDS IN FDOT CONSTRUCTION ZONES

Nationwide, attention continues to shift from the construction of new highway facilities to improving the quality of service of existing ones. In this research, the FDOT's existing alternative methods for controlling speeds in work zones can be identified and evaluated. Then, according to the evaluation, to select methods which show promise for improving FDOT traffic control in work zones; and, in addition, to develop procedures for implementation within current FDOT maintenance of traffic procedures. The general objective of this study is to identify and evaluate alternative techniques for passive control of vehicle speeds on FDOT's construction work zones, and also, to determine how these methods should be used to guide drivers as they approach and proceed through a work zone on freeway facilities.
