Good work zone planning, design, and operations practices are important in design-build projects, but may need to be applied somewhat differently because of how project processes differ from traditional design-bid-build. FHWA has developed a series of products on incorporating work zone safety and mobility considerations in design-build projects. The series includes four documents: key considerations; tips for developing requests for proposal; case studies; and a summary leaflet on successes, challenges, and tips.
This document is designed to provide more in-depth information and guidance on the types of work zone safety and mobility performance measures practitioners deem useful within categories of safety, mobility, customer satisfaction, and agency and/or contractor efficiency and productivity. The Guide describes data needed to (1) compute measures, (2) evaluate work zone exposure, and (3) stratify data to describe when and where the work zone impacts are occurring. The Guide identifies methods of obtaining data and summarizes key considerations associated with each type of data.
Current Federal Regulations (23 CFR 630 Subpart J) encourage States to collect and analyze data to support the initiation and enhancement of agency-level processes and procedures addressing work zone impacts. This tri-fold brochure summarizes several resources, developed by FHWA, to provide practitioners with the skills to identify current as well as potential/new data sources for use in work zone performance measurement, assist in determining how to select and compute useful work zone performance measures, and the viability of each source for work zone performance measurement.
Institutional issues provide challenges to implementing congestion pricing strategies. The primer explores the types of institutional issues that are commonly encountered with priced lanes, zone-based pricing, and parking pricing programs. These issues include the up-front challenges of establishing leadership, meeting legislative requirements, and setting an organizational structure. Once the challenges are overcome, there are numerous institutional issues related to the planning process, public involvement and implementation procedures. The primer examines these topics with the insights gained from case study applications around the United States and Europe.
