The course is designed to provide maximum flexibility by including core, recommended, and optional lessons. Each participant receives a copy of the "Advanced Work Zone Management and Design" reference manual and a participant workbook that contains all lesson materials.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Apply the latest safety and mobility design concepts as it relates to temporary traffic control (TTC) plans for work zones
  • Identify the latest MUTCD principles as it relates to TTC plans for planning, design, project management, and describe the various contracting issues that may need to be resolved
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the latest concepts as related to Parts 1, 5 and 6 of the MUTCD
