Work Zone Intersection SafetyAbstract:
It is a challenge to maintain safety and mobility at intersections in a work zone. For drivers 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 the way it adds to travel time. But the development and application of well-designed temporary traffic control plans can ensure safe mobility for workers and all road users (motorist, bicyclists and pedestrians including persons with disabilities) in an intersection work zone.
