Work zone safety for highway maintenance crews and road users alike is a top concern across the United States. To help states identify and implement technologies that improve safety, the National Highway Cooperative Research Program (NCHRP) recently released Synthesis 587: Use of Smart Work Zone Technologies for Improving Work Zone Safety. The publication documents and reviews the challenges and practices state DOTs have found for putting a variety of smart work zone technologies to use.
To discuss the publication’s findings, as well as promising new technologies still on the horizon, NCHRP will host a webinar on February 7 from 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Eastern.
