Guidelines for the Use of Portable Traffic Signals in Rural Two-Lane Maintenance OperationsAuthor/Presenter: Daniels, Ginger; Venglar, Steven P.; Picha, Dale L.
The purpose of this report is to provide guidelines for the application of portable traffic signals in short-term, routine maintenance projects on rural two-lane highways in Texas. This guidebook serves as a supplement to the equipment operator’s manual. Using the findings of the research project as its basis, the document provides guidelines on the types of maintenance projects best suited for portable traffic signals, procedures for setting up work zones, and the steps for determining signal timings for setting the controllers. This implementation guide is intended to be a useful tool for field personnel in the application of this technology.
