ITS IN WORK ZONES: TRAVELER INFORMATION AND A WHOLE LOT MORE

In the world of today we greatly depend on having a reliable, efficient transportation system to move people and goods continuously. Construction and maintenance work zones, while necessary to the long-term viability of our road transportation network, also present challenges to our mobility and safety. The use of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in work zones can help alleviate some of these impacts. This paper discusses the mobility and safety challenges that work zones present and the various ways that ITS can be used to lessen those impacts. It provides examples of actual applications and their benefits, as well as some overall lessons learned.
