This one- or two-day course addresses the entire process for designing, installing, maintaining, and evaluating temporary traffic control in work zones. Topics include: applicable standards and guidelines, fundamental principles of temporary traffic control, human factors, component parts of a traffic control zone, traffic control devices, constructability, and development of a transportation management plan. Students will break out into small groups for hands-on exercises. Certification is also available for this course.
- Understand the engineering concepts necessary to properly design effective traffic control plans.
- Understand the fundamental principles of temporary traffic control needed to make discretionary decisions and adjustments.
- Cite the sources of standards, guidelines, and specifications governing the design of traffic control plans (TCPs).
- Design TCPs that would facilitate the inspection and maintenance functions of the traffic control systems.
- Know the proper processes and procedures for making TCP adjustments, disposition of actions generated, and their legal implications.
