Pedestrian Accommodation in Work Zones: A Field GuideAbstract:
This guide identifies common issues adversely affecting pedestrians that field personnel should be regularly checking for and correcting when working on or near sidewalks or walking paths. These issues are categorized according to the type of pedestrian accommodation that the work activity requires:
- Working Near the Sidewalk or Walking Path, but the Sidewalk/Path Remains Open
- Diversion of Sidewalk or Path around the Work Space
- Sidewalk or Path is Temporarily Closed, Pedestrians Detoured to an Alternate Existing Sidewalk or Path
A number of resources are available that describe how to properly design and implement these accommodations, and referenced at the end of this guide.
