Use of Smart Work Zone Technologies for Improving Work Zone Safety: A Synthesis of Highway PracticeAuthor/Presenter: Brown, Henry; Edara, Praveen
To make work zones safer, state departments of transportation (DOTs) use smart technologies with specialized components, such as sensors, communications, software, and electronic equipment, to manage traffic and operations and disseminate traveler information.
The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program’s NCHRP Synthesis 587: Use of Smart Work Zone Technologies for Improving Work Zone Safety reviews and documents state DOT practices and implementation challenges regarding the use of smart work zone technologies designed to improve safety for motorists, construction and maintenance workers, and other users of the transportation system.
