NCHRP Synthesis 20-05/Topic 16-09 [Final (Synthesis)]

Managing Urban Freeway Maintenance
[ NCHRP 20-05 (Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices) ]

  Project Data

This synthesis will be of interest to maintenance engineers, traffic engineers, and others interested in the management aspects of maintaining urban freeways. Information is provided on techniques and procedures used by agencies to improve and speed up maintenance procedures, schedule work, and coordinate freeway lane closures. Maintenance of aging urban freeways is difficult because of the high volumes of traffic on these facilities. This report of the Transportation Research Board describes techniques and procedures that highway agencies are using, such as reducing work time and scheduling work for off-peak periods, to minimize traffic delays while freeway maintenance is performed.  The report for this topic can be purchased at http://www.trb.org/news/blurb_detail.asp?id=3387
