TRAFFIC CONTROL IN CONSTRUCTION ZONES: IT'S TIME FOR A FRESH LOOK

During the summer of 1976 an in-depth review was made in 18 states of the various ways in which temporary traffic control devices are employed in construction zones. Hundreds of slides and approximately 10,000 feet of motion picture film were taken for purposes of documenting how well current standards are being applied. Review of this film documentation together with information from FHWA field offices suggests that "work-site housekeeping" may be responsible for a significant part of the problem. Also, it is apparent that often the driving public is not properly guided or informed, and little or no protection is provided for motorists or workers throughout construction areas.
