Targeted Work Zone Engagement Framework Guidance Document


The Targeted Work Zone Engagement Framework (“Framework”) was developed in 2016 to serve as a resource for FHWA personnel to easily and efficiently provide targeted assistance to State transportation agencies. It is designed to support work zone program personnel in enhancing the effectiveness of their work zone safety and mobility policies and procedures. It is intended for use by State agency staff in conjunction with FHWA subject matter experts to identify and assess work zone safety and mobility impact mitigation needs, determine useful resources, and implement improvements. The Framework, which has been updated to include tools and resources published since the original issue in 2016, includes a range of information resources (guidelines, field guides, podcasts, training, and analytical tools) along with guidance to assist agencies in determining how to improve their own work zone safety and mobility policies and procedures based on available data.
