The safe and efficient flow of traffic through work zones is a major concern to transportation officials, industry, the public, businesses, and commercial motor carriers. The FHWA has developed the National Highway Work Zone Safety Program (NHWZSP) to reduce the fatalities and injurious crashes in work zones, and to enhance traffic operation and safety within work zones.
To learn about work zone management operations, to include the Work Zone Safety and Mobility Rule, work zone contracting and construction strategies, ITS in work zones, work zone impacts analysis, and best practices, please visit the FHWA Work Zone Management Program web site at https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/workzones.
To learn more about a range of aspects of work zones, please go to the National Work Zone Safety Information Clearinghouse www.workzonesafety.org. The primary purpose of the Clearinghouse is to promote safety for workers, motorists, and facility owners and operators in roadway construction work zones. It is perhaps the largest online repository of work zone information. It contains on-line databases, work zone crash and fatality statistics, training programs, research services, webinars, video vault, and current events related to work zone safety and the deliverables from the FHWA Work Zone Safety Grants Program.
