This four-part training course provides participants with advanced knowledge and competencies in work zone design and management practices. This training will cover the fundamental principles, elements, and devices associated with Temporary Traffic Control (TTC), with a heavy emphasis on the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) TTC Standards and Guidelines. Design considerations and positive protection devices (temporary barriers, stationary crash cushions, truck/trailer mounted attenuators, etc.) will be discussed, along with how to accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists. Finally, the training will cover TTC plan management and design. There will be interactive activities during this course, and participants will walk away with a more thorough understanding of TTC in Florida.
Attendees will learn how to
◾ Apply the latest safety and mobility design concepts related to TTC plans for work zones.
◾ Identify the latest FDOT standards related to TTC plans for planning, design, and project management.
◾ Demonstrate knowledge of standards related to such items as worker and flagger apparel (such as ANSI and similar standard guides).
◾ Consider alternative innovations, best practices, and recent research findings in work zone planning, design, and execution.
◾ Develop temporary transportation management plans for safety and mobility.
◾ Identify and analyze specific (key) issues and concerns that affect work zone design and demonstrate the ability to explain safety and mobility issues, impacts, and alternatives to peers, the public, or decision-makers.
◾ Summarize work zone safety and mobility impacts and alternatives.
The target audience is state and local design engineers, traffic and safety engineers, senior work zone traffic engineers, transportation planners, employees/board members of metropolitan planning organizations, regional planners, regional construction engineers (with work zone experience), and senior engineering technicians.
• Gain/review an understanding of TTC in Florida
• Discuss workable concepts and techniques during the work zone management and design in Florida
• Discuss FDOT standards and procedures used during the design of TTC Plans in Florida
• Enable participants to manage and design work zone to improve safety in Florida
