A need exists for road building contractors, project inspectors, and project engineers to be properly trained in temporary traffic control setups and have the ability to assess conditions throughout the entire project duration that assists with evaluation, identification, and assessment of existing hazards while also providing guidance for corrective measures.  To fulfill this need, this training course in Temporary Traffic Control (TTC) will aid safety professionals, designers, project engineers, inspectors, maintenance personnel, contractors, and employees in the field in the proper application of TTC practices and procedures.  The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), relevant highway agency specifications1, and standard drawings are used by practitioners as references for guidance and recommendations on proper TTC procedures.  The primary goal of this course is to acquaint personnel with the MUTCD for use in the field by safety representatives, designers, project engineers, inspectors, maintenance personnel, and contractors to establish and maintain appropriate TTC.  Part 6, Temporary Traffic Control in the 2009 edition of the MUTCD will be used in this course.  This seminar should be of interest to state, city, and county employees, as well as contractors, their employees, safety representatives, and all those whose work involves street and highway operations.

Note:  1. The Alabama Department of Transportation standard specifications, standard drawings, guidelines for operation, traffic control procedure, inspection process, and crash reporting procedure are highlighted throughout the course and provided as an example.  Practitioners residing in other states are encouraged to reference their state agency’s standard guidance regarding temporary traffic control.
