PennDOT Aims to Deploy Work Zone Reservation SystemAbstract:
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT)’s Lane Reservation System is expected to go live in 2022. This system allows work crews to make reservations to perform roadwork based on options available. PennDOT uses various data sources and tools like FREEVAL-PA to determine the most appropriate times to allow work zone reservations. This approach helps ensure the safety of highway work crews, reduce congestion on major roadways, and eliminate conflicts between other work zones in the area.
