One of the ways a state department of transportation or other transportation agency can address work zone safety and other impacts is to develop and implement a transportation management plan (TMP).
The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 945: Strategies for Work Zone Transportation Management Plans provides a practitioner-ready guidebook on how to select and implement strategies that improve safety and traffic operations in roadway construction work zones.
Supplemental materials to the report include NCHRP Web-Only Document 276: Evaluating Strategies for Work Zone Transportation Management Plans; fact sheets on ramp meters, reversible lanes, and truck restrictions; and guidebook appendices.
