This document provides information on how to consider accommodating and mitigating oversize and overweight vehicles in work zones. This publication is not intended to be a stand-alone document for designing work zone traffic control plans. State, county, local, and tribal transportation agency subject matter experts, can use this material as reference material to augment their own work zone transportation management planning manuals and guidance materials, and work zone design policies and procedures.
The material has been gathered from existing State design manuals, considered as noteworthy state-of-the-practices by the authors and worthy of sharing with other states, and from state-of-the-art work zone safety and traffic management research documents developed by the U.S. General Accountability Office, the FHWA and other transportation research institutions.
