Utility Work Zone Traffic Control

Overview

Utility work zones are fundamentally different from most highway construction work zones.  Utility work is often of a shorter duration and involves smaller crew sizes, which makes a traffic control plan such as that utilized in highway construction sometimes impractical.  As utility service providers often need to work on or near roadways, utility work zones pose unique challenges to health and safety of both motorists and workers.

This collection of materials and applications has been developed to address these challenges as a part of the Federal Highway Administration Work Zone Safety Grant Program.
