 Inspect traffic control elements routinely and modify when necessary.

 Pay increased attention to roadside safety near temporary traffic control.

 Train all persons that select, place and maintain temporary traffic control devices.

 Establish proper legislative authority to implement and enforce needed traffic regulations, speed zoning, parking controls, and incident management.

 Keep the public well informed.

 If there is a side road intersection/driveway or ramp within the work area, additional traffic control, such as flaggers and appropriate signs, may be needed on the side road/driveway approaches or ramps.
