In the State of Colorado, the primary document used to develop and manage traffic control is the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). More specifically Part Six of this manual when dealing with construction or maintenance in a work zone. Traffic Control operates and looks very differently on paved versus unpaved roads, and on two-lane versus multilane roads, but your agency’s staff is required to setup the traffic control on each of these types of roads. This program will provide some insight into the development of a Traffic Control Plan and setting up of that traffic control.
This program will also examine some of the Safety features that can be used to enhance the safety of the roadway for the traveling public (i.e. Rumble strips and stripes, the Safety Edge, and enhanced curve delineation).
This course will benefit all employees, foremen and supervisors.
This course is a CORE class in the Roads Scholar I course track and required for graduation. Click above for more details.
