Spring Issue of Roadway Safety explores barrier protection benefits

When the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) was seeking additional ways to protect roadway workers, they turned to two tools that provide barriers between workers and passing traffic.

They found mobile barriers offer positive protection that simultaneously helps the flow of traffic but also recognized some limitations.

Check out details in the Spring Issue of Roadway Safety magazine, now available online.

The magazine is packed with articles including:

  • A Michigan project that is equipping a section of Interstate 94 with digital infrastructure, creating the state’s first connected and automated vehicle (CAV) travel lane.
  • How roadway safety advocates can help curtail the horrors of human trafficking and efforts already undertaken by state DOTs.
  • The progress of sisters Katie and Cameron Hutt in achieving their dreams with the help of Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarships.
  • Insights from Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) Executive Director Tim Gatz, drawn from nearly three decades in the field.
  • Perspective from ATSSA Board Chair-Elect Haley Norman on the founding and value of the Oklahoma ATSSA Chapter.
  • ATSSA efforts in helping disseminate details on the update to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.

Also, coming soon is Convention Extra, a special section devoted to capturing the flavor and fun of this year’s event in San Diego.
