About the research
The Iowa DOT Work Zone GO Team is a focused effort to reduce fatal and major injury crashes within work zones on the primary highway system in Iowa. The Iowa Department of Transportation has requested that the Institute for Transportation provide support to the team through acquisition, assimilation, and review of pertinent work zone, crash, and situational data.
Work includes InTrans FY21 Work Zone GO Team support efforts, which focus on: (1) establishing the contextual data needed to support these efforts, and (2) beginning to produce the information for review and refinement. Support may include associating work zone crashes with construction and maintenance actions, construction project numbers, the traffic control used, as well as other potentially useful data, such as traffic speed, volume, and weather conditions.
