Smarter Work Zone Intelligent Transportation Systems
Smarter Work Zones is an FHWA Every Day Counts (EDC) initiative that is assisting State DOTs in effectively managing traffic during construction. The Smarter Work Zones initiative involves both enhanced project coordination as well as the use of work zone intelligent transportation systems (ITS). By coordinating across agencies, combining projects, and effectively planning for minimal impacts from utility work and right-of-way acquisition, stakeholders can improve performance. This course is intended for transportation agency staff, including technical staff (planners, designers, traffic engineers, highway/safety engineers, construction, etc.); management and executive-level staff responsible for setting policy and program direction; field staff responsible for building projects and managing work zones; and staff responsible for assessing performance for the use of intelligent transportation systems and project coordination.
