Work Zone Congestion Mitigation

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Suitable for...

  • Ministries of Transportation
  • Motor Vehicle Authorities
  • Consultants

Mobility and safety for all road users in a work zone are extremely prominent issues because road users commonly expect minimal disruption to their normal driving patterns when they enter a work zone. Unfortunately work zones often cause lengthy delays that can result in unsafe conditions for all road users as well as workers.

Congestion mitigation strategies can be used to minimize the impacts of work zones on all road users. This webinar will introduce attendees to some of the best practices and state of the art technologies that are being used to reduce congestion in work zones, thereby making these work zones safer for all road users.

Sponsored by the IRF Road Safety Committee and the IRF Work Zone Traffic Control Safety Sub Committee
