Work Zone Intersection SafetyAbstract:
It is a challenge to maintain safety and mobility at intersections in a work zone. For drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists unfamiliar with an intersection, a work zone can be a sudden, potentially dangerous, surprise. For motorists who regularly drive through an intersection, a work zone can be a frustrating nuisance because of how it adds to travel time. But the development and application of well-designed temporary traffic control plans can ensure safety for workers and mobility for all road users (motorist, bicyclists, and pedestrians, including persons with disabilities) in an intersection work zone.
