Work Zone Traffic Analysis – Applications and Decision Framework is a two-day instructor-led course utilizing lecture and group collaborative exercises to provide guidance on work zone traffic analysis applications and decision framework. It will help work practitioners in understanding the analytical methods involved in conducting a work zone traffic analysis. This course is designed to cover establishing a work zone traffic analysis process; step-by-step guidance on determining the most suitable tools to perform a work zone analysis; key considerations when applying various modeling tools for work zone traffic analysis; a decision framework on how to select the best alternatives based on a set of performance measures; essential components of work zone traffic analysis report and a variety of case studies to demonstrate a diverse set of work zone traffic analysis applications.
The course provides an overview of the Federal Highway Administration’s guidebook titled “Traffic Analysis Toolbox XII – Work Zone Traffic Analysis – Applications and Decision Framework. ” Work Zone Traffic Analysis (WZTA) is the process of evaluating and determining the mobility and safety impacts within a transportation construction, maintenance, or rehabilitation project. The purpose of the course is to provide participants an understanding of the analytical methods involved in conducting and developing a WZTA as well as direction on where to go for more information.
