Work Zone Traffic Management Synthesis: Barrier Delineation Treatments in Work Zones

 

 

ABSTRACT

This report is a synthesis of research findings on current practices in the delineation of portable concrete safety–shaped barriers (CSSBs) in work zones. The information is based on a review of research reports and work zone manuals from a selection of state and city highway agencies, discussions with highway officials, and field observations of selected highway construction projects. The report presents an assessment of the state–of–the–practice and makes recommendations for further research and future revisions of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.
