Work Zone Data Collection & Analysis: What, Why, and How
This podcast is a companion to the Work Zone Safety Data Collection and Analysis Guide, which was also developed under the Work Zone Safety Grant and is available at https://workzonesafety.org/research/record/27339. The podcast was developed to assist State DOT construction engineers, traffic control plan developers, planners, and designers with collecting data in preparation for developing work zone strategies, designing a safe work zone, and creating an effective plan for managing traffic in and around work zones. Part I discusses why work zone data collection and analysis is important, available resources, and the types of data most commonly used in safety analyses. Part II focuses on data collection and analysis specifically addressing queues in work zones. And finally, Part III discusses how data collection and analysis can help practitioners mitigate work zone speeding.
