Traffic Control Coordinator Program

Description: 

New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) and other agencies require a contractor to assign a supervisory-level employee with requisite onsite experience to act as the Traffic Control Coordinator (TCC) on roadway construction projects. Participants who successfully complete this course (and the prerequisites) will be eligible to serve as TCC with supervisory and coordinating roles. The course material is developed around typical long-term and short-term roadwork that occurs on any state roadway, whether two lanes or multi-lane Interstates. The training covers the standard work zone protection as specified in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). It also offers practical exercises on setting up and taking down work zone safety devices found in a traffic control plan. Sessions on OSHA, NJDOT, and state police relationships and work zone traffic control liability issues are included.
