About the research

The ability to acquire and set up work zone-related devices that are in compliance with the 2012 revisions to the 2009 Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD) can sometimes be difficult for smaller cities. The smaller budgets for these cities can result in a lack of inventory and/or the use of signs that are in poor condition.

The goal of the project was to provide an avenue for small cities to obtain a basic package of work zone signs and personal protection vests that could help them improve the safety of their work zone setups and increase the safety of their workers and the traveling public.
