Work Zone Rule Resource CD Avave tailable
Implementation guidance for the updated Work Zone Safety and Mobility Rule is now collected in a new CD released by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Published in the Federal Register in September 2004, the rule's overarching goal is to reduce crashes and congestion in and around work zones. "The resources on the CD are intended to continue to aid agencies as they fully implement the rule in the coming years," says Tracy Scriba of FHWA's Office of Safety. The CD contains four guides previously released by FHWA (see May 2007 Focus):
- Implementing the Rule on Work Zone Safety and Mobility (Pub. No. FHWA-HOP-05-065).
- Work Zone Public Information and Outreach Strategies(Pub. No. FHWA-HOP-05-067).
- Work Zone Impacts Assessment: An Approach to Assess and Manage Work Zone Safety and Mobility Impacts of Road Projects (Pub. No. FHWA-HOP-05-068).
- Developing and Implementing Transportation Management Plans for Work Zones (Pub. No. FHWA-HOP-05-066).
Also included are resources such as checklists, templates, and frequently asked questions, as well as information on the Work Zone Peer-to-Peer Program. Most of the materials on the CD have been previously distributed in printed format and are available online at www.ops.fhwa.dot.gov/wz/resources/final_rule.htm. The CD pulls all of the materials together in one small package and provides some of the materials, such as the templates, in a more easily usable format.
