Estimation of Traffic Demand at Freeway Work Zones

August 12, 2021

Far too often, work zones are difficult for non-disabled pedestrians to navigate and impassible, or nearly so, for pedestrians with disabilities. Work zone layouts must consider the needs of all users, including those with disabilities, to provide access and improve safety. To help agencies and contractors address their responsibilities in temporary traffic control plans in accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) Title II, the ARTBA Work Zone Safety Consortium, sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration, has released a new online course Applying the Americans with Disabilities Act to Work Zones.
