Work Zone Traffic Impact Analysis – Grant Course
This two-day course provides useful guidance to agencies and/or individuals considering modeling and simulation tools for traffic impact analysis. It also provides a broad, fundamental understanding of how these analytical tools available to support work zone analysis: the strengths, weaknesses, data requirements, and level of detail. This course describes how these analytical tools can be used to support work zone design by exploring the factors to consider when selecting a model, including data availability and quality, work zone characteristics, measures of effectiveness, and available resources. This course is intended for engineers and others responsible for deciding which work zone strategies to implement, as well as decision-makers considering work zone analytical tools.
Modules covered in this course:
- Overview of Work Zone Analysis
- Work Zone Analysis Approaches
- Tailoring Work Zone Analysis
- Work Zone Analysis Process
- Case Studies
