Evaluation of Work Zone Speed Reduction Measures (Presentation)Author/Presenter: Kamyab, Ali; Maze, Tom; Gent, Steve; Schrock, Steve
The Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) has made improving work zone (WZ) safety a high priority. Managing vehicle speeds through work zones is perceived to be an important factor in achieving this goal. A number of speed reduction techniques are currently used by transportation agencies throughout the country to control speeds and reduce speed variation at work zones. The purpose of this project is to study these and other applicable work zone speed reduction strategies. Furthermore, this research explores transportation agencies’ policies regarding managing speeds in long-term, short-term, and moving work zones. This powerpoint presentation gives survey results and responses. The survey consists of six multipart questions.
