Design and oversight of work zone operations
The design of work zone traffic control is handled by Traffic Engineering in KDOT. However, the design of the actual construction sequence for a project is done by road designers. All work zone issues are handled directly by their district constuction engineers and inspectors and Traffic Engineering to assist, if requested.
The Traffic Engineering section sets policy with regards to work zones.
It is KDOT’s goal to make all parties working on a roadway be uniform throughout and to have everyone involved follow the same policies and procedures. KDOT’s maintenance forces are moving toward adherence to the same standards that construction personnel follow. At this time, the utilities, surveying, and research/testing sections are being trained the proper standards/policies.
