The Maintenance Leadership Academy is a training program for individuals who hold positions as district, county, and State maintenance supervisors. It is designed to help participants develop practical decision-making skills related to the various processes, methods, and materials that are applied to maintain their organizations' bridge and highway systems.
The Traffic and Work Zone Safety module focuses on the skills needed to provide safe work zones and traffic services for all road users and work crews. Since most agencies conduct their own traffic control training, this module provides a forum for comparing national versus state practice. It also emphasizes lane closure strategies and the need to minimize the impact work zones have on the traveling public. In addition to work zone traffic control, the module addresses permanent signs and markings; barriers, guardrails, crash cushions, and end treatments; and incident management.
The goal of this module is for you to be able to provide traffic services and establish work zones that comply with agency guidance under normal traffic conditions and traffic incidents. Achieving this goal minimizes risks to workers, emergency responders, and the travelling public.
The target audience for the Maintenance Leadership Academy is individuals who hold positions as State, district, and county maintenance supervisors involved with the operations of running a statewide, regional, or county operation and need the skills and knowledge associated with asset management.
