COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Meeting the national requirements for work zone traffic control is a critically important responsibility of maintenance personnel. The national requirements, found in Part 6 of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), promote driver and worker safety during roadway maintenance projects. This training, Basics of Work Zone Traffic Control, provides an introduction to the requirements outlined in Part 6 of the 2009 MUTCD. The course also offers an overview of the manual's structure and requirements regarding traffic control devices and their applications, flagging operations and procedures, and pedestrian and worker safety.

Through a series of work zone scenarios, this training uses the MUTCD Part 6 to review fundamental concepts of setting up work zones, including proper signage, taper lengths, and flagging procedures. Participants are encouraged to compare their State's standards, if available, to the guidance established in the MUTCD and determine what additional requirements may need to be met to establish safe, compliant work zones.

This training was developed as part of the Maintenance Training Series. To access all the courses in the series, enroll in the 134109 course.
