Transplanting desirable trees with a tree spade or other mechanical means is possible with assistance from professionals.

E 9/18/ Temporary Precast Concrete Median Barriers: Established a policy that precluded the use of "permanent" concrete median barriers for traffic control and protection of work zones during construction operations. Road construction sites and highway work zones can be dangerous. According to the Center for Construction Research, workers lost their lives between and in road work zones, which breaks down to workers on average per year. Even if you're well versed in the Manual on Uniform Control Devices (MUTCD), i.

of work zone crashes, depending on the type of roadway where the work zone is located. As Table 1 shows, large trucks are overrepresented in rear­end collisions and also sideswipe crashes at work zones on high­speed controlled­access facilities such as interstates, freeways, and expressways.

Pavement preservation is a proactive approach to maintaining existing highways. Freeway-preservation projects typically require construction workers to conduct their work in close proximity to ongoing high-speed traffic.

This exposure creates a dangerous situation for both workers and passing motorists. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Design of construction work zones on high-speed highways. Washington, D.C.: Transportation Research Board, Most work zones are divided into traffic spaces where motorists are allowed to travel and work spaces where workers are performing their work activities.

Figure 1 on page 2 illustrates this division. Keeping work spaces and traffic spaces separate in work zones allows both workers and the motoring public to be as safe as possible. Under NCHRP Project“Design of Construction Work Zones on High-Speed High- ways,” researchers at the Pennsylvania State University developed guidance for the design of geometric features, including horizontal and vertical alignment, cross-sectional features, and temporary concrete barrier placement.

The Work Zone Traffic Control manual is intended to provide New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) employees, utility companies, municipalities, and contractors who are involved with the design, set-up and maintenance of highway work zones, or anyone working within the state right-of-way, with the basic principles and elements constituting a safe work zone.

Design of Construction Work Zones on High-Speed Highways: NCHRP Project The National Highway Cooperative Research Program is conducting a project to develop a methodology for recommending designs and traffic controls that would ensure safe and efficient movement of traffic through construction work zones on high-speed highways.

Section provides guidance on the selection of a construction- zone design speed. 3. Construction Pre Start Checklist. Start each road construction workday with a safety meeting. Conditions can change greatly from day to day in the workzone and surrounding traffic areas.

Work zone workers, drivers and flaggers should be briefed on the work activity schedule each day and identify and share potential hazards. A Guide to Short‐Term Stationary, Short‐Duration, and Mobile Work Zone Traffic Control Page 2 STSDM work zones involve unique characteristics that must be considered in the development of the TTC design.

Work in these types of work zones must be completed in a very short period of time. Highway Design Handbook for Older Drivers and Pedestrians IV. CONSTRUCTION/WORK ZONES. Background and Scope of Handbook Recommendations.

Highway construction and maintenance zones deserve special consideration with respect to older driver needs because of their strong potential to violate driver expectancy. TxDOT has established standards and specifications for the construction and maintenance of highways, streets and bridges.
