In less than a year and a half, the National Work Zone Safety Information Clearinghouse has made a place for itself in the world of roadway construction and safety. The clearinghouse has quickly become the leading international source of information on roadway work zone safety. Opened in February 1998, the clearinghouse is a cooperative venture between the Federal Highway Administration and the American Road and Transportation Builders Association. The clearinghouse is operated and maintained by the Texas Transportation Institute and includes an interactive Internet Web site, onsite research personnel, and customer service representatives. The site includes five searchable databases on key contact personnel, safety practices, available technologies, research results, and safety training courses and programs. Besides links to other related sites, the site offers many materials and even some full reports online. While the clearinghouse receives a number of phone and fax requests for information, it is the Web site that services many requests, now receiving over 5,000 hits a month.
