This guideline outlines a suggested process for planning and executing a rolling roadblock for temporary traffic control applications, including the decision-making process on when to use this technique. The rolling roadblock is a practice that can be used to close all lanes of traffic with pacing vehicles to create a gap so that construction activities can be performed. A checklist is also included in the guide and outlines roles and responsibilities for each stakeholder involved to enhance communication and coordination and ensure safety for workers and motorists.
– What is a rolling roadblock?
– How do I execute the operation?
– Other items for consideration including additional traffic control alternatives and planning for pacing situations.
The audience for this product is highway agency decision makers (including law enforcement personnel) that will use the guide to develop policies or implement the practice.
