Work Zone Traffic Impact Analysis
This course provides useful guidance to agencies and/or individuals considering modeling and simulation tools for traffic impact analysis. It also provides a broad, fundamental understanding of how these analytical tools available to support work zone analysis: the strengths,weaknesses, data requirements, and level of detail. This course describes how these analytical tools can be used to support work zone design by exploring the factors to consider when selecting a model, including data availability and quality, work zone characteristics, measures of effectiveness, and available resources.
Intended audience: This course is intended for engineers and others responsible for deciding upon which work zone strategies to implement, as well as decision-makers considering workzone analytical tools. Previous knowledge of work zone concepts is encouraged, but not required.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1.Provide guidance to agencies and/or individuals considering work zone traffic impact analysis
2.Understand the fundamentals of how analytical tools can be used to support work zone traffic impact analysis
3.List and discuss some available tools for work zone impact analysis
