This document describes the importance of ensuring good positive guidance when implementing a work zone traffic control plan. Four key concepts are emphasized: ensuring that all driver information needs are met to allow them to navigate safely through the work zone, standardizing the information provided to drivers to meet their expectations, ensuring that information is spread out through the approach and work area to avoid driver overload, and ensuring that all work zone hazards are identifiable and visible to the motorist.
