RESEARCH PAYS OFF: NIGHTTIME CONSTRUCTION: DEVELOPING A SPECIFICATION FOR ROAD WORK AT NIGHT

In 2002, the Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Public Works (NSTPW) had to repave 8 km of a main arterial route with an average daily traffic exceeding 25,000 vehicles. As detours were not practical, the repaving had to be carried out during nighttime hours. NSTPW developed a specification to address the special concerns of working at night. NSTPW relied on published findings from recently completed National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) projects and on comments and specifications from many state and provincial departments of transportation. The specification has proved effective and practical, and improvements continue in response to on-site observations and further study.
