[ NCHRP 20-05 (Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices) ]

  Project Data

This synthesis report will be of interest to traffic control plan designers and administrators; highway engineers (traffic, safety, project, and resident construction); highway construction contractor personnel; and consultants, inspectors, and technicians involved with the design, implementation, and revision of highway work zone traffic control plans. Information on the state of the practice in traffic control plan (TCP) management methods is presented. The emphasis of the synthesis is on innovative and efficient methods that lead to safe traffic control in work zones. The document emphasizes efficient management of the four stages (predesign planning, design, implementation, and revision) of TCPs for different classes of highways and streets in both rural and urban environments.  The report for this topic can be purchased at http://www.trb.org/news/blurb_detail.asp?id=3349
