ATSSA Temporary Traffic Control Considerations for Urban Work Zones

  • Mar 27-28, 2019 (9:00 - 5:00 pm CT; 8:00 - 4:00 pm MT)
    2-day Video Conference


DEADLINE: Wednesday, March 6, 2019


All those involved in work zone projects should have a basic knowledge of temporary traffic control that allows them to assist in installing traffic control devices, monitoring their performance, recognizing deficiencies during the course of a project, and conducting themselves and others safely in a work zone.

This two-day course addresses work zones in more populated and congested areas, particularly the considerations (substantive safety) necessary to address work zones in urban environments. These environments may involve restricted spaces, parking issues, limited sight distance, business access, pedestrian, ADA, and bicyclist considerations. This course addresses instances when standards cannot be met and how to address these situations on urban streets.

There will be an ATSSA proctored exam at the end of this course. Attendees will receive a certificate of completion from ATSSA after successfully completing the course and passing the exam.
