REPORTS ON TRAFFIC FLOW AND SAFETY APPLICATIONS OF ROAD BARRIERS: 3. MITIGATION OF CONSTRUCTION-RELATED CONGESTION THROUGH THE USE OF POSITIVE SEPARATION TECHNOLOGIES

The purpose of this report is to investigate the application of Moveable Barrier Technology (MBT) at work zones and to make appropriate recommendations. This report shows that MBT has reduced construction-related delays significantly at many different types of work zone situations without compromising safety. The cost efficiency of MBT is investigated and the report finds that MBT becomes cost effective as soon as work zone capacity is lower than the traffic volume moving through the work zone.
