Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) not only increases the quality of bridges but has improved safety for the construction workers as well as for the traveling public. Using ABC reduces construction times to a single weekend, resulting in savings of delay costs to the public in the millions of dollars. In addition, the use of SPMT equipment and faster construction methods decreases the potential for work-zone related accidents to travelers, and improved safety to construction workers.

State DOTs and other highway construction industry experts have identified the need for better guidance in setting speed limits and managing speeds in work zones. To maintain safe traffic operations, motorist speed should be inhibited as little as practical. However, reducing vehicle speeds is often important through work zones when workers are exposed to moving traffic without positive protection and when roadway restrictions and work operations present increased risks to motorists.How does one balance the motorist safety needs with worker safety needs? This session will take on that difficult question and provide some ideas on what the industry is doing!
