The primary function of the Temporary Traffic Control (TTC) is to provide a safe and efficient flow of traffic through or around highway construction projects, utility work, maintenance operations and traffic incidents.
Be Alert: Dedicate your full attention to the road.
Minimize Distractions: Avoid changing radio stations, eating, or doing other tasks that could divert a portion of your concentration.
Don’t Tailgate: Keep at least two car lengths between you and the car ahead of you. Watch for brake lights on vehicles ahead of you, be aware of the traffic around you, and be prepared to react.
Obey Signs: Heed the posted speed limit. Speeding is a major cause of work zone crashes. For this reason, fines are doubled for moving violations in work zones.
Use Caution Changing Lanes: Change only when you can do it safely and where pavement markings may indicate you may.
Obey Flaggers: A flagger has the same authority as the regulatory sign; you can be fined for ignoring their instructions.
Expect the Unexpected: Workers and construction vehicles or equipment may enter your lane without warning. Other vehicles may abruptly slow down, change lanes, or stop.
Expect Delays: Check online before you leave to see if roads on your route are under construction. Leave extra travel time accordingly and consider an alternate route if possible.
Be Patient: The goal of the work zone crew is to improve the road and your future drive. Like the signs say, give them a “brake.”Calculate Oversize/Overweight Load Regulations and Prices Instantly with Oversize.io
