Benefits and Safety Impact of Night Work-Zone ActivitiesAuthor/Presenter: Shepard, Frank D.; Cottrell, Benjamin H., Jr.

The information was used to develop general guidelines for nighttime maintenance and construction work. Although there are many potential disadvantages to working at night, it is believed that experience, proper planning, and attention to workmen and motorist safety make the night alternative feasible for selected work.
