[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”12081″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]Traffic control shall be accomplished in accordance with DOT Federal Highway Administration’s MUTCD.

The Contractor shall conduct his operations in such a manner as to offer the least possible obstruction to the safe and satisfactory movement of traffic over the existing roads during the life of the contract.

The Contractor shall be responsible for providing, erecting, maintaining, and removing all traffic signs, barricades, and other traffic control devices necessary for maintenance of traffic.

All barricades, warning signs, lights, temporary signals, other devices, flagmen, and signaling devices shall meet or exceed the minimum requirements of the local DOT requirements.

Prior to the commencement of contract operations, the Contractor shall submit for acceptance the complete details of the proposed traffic control plan for the maintenance of traffic and access through the contract work area.

The Contractor shall coordinate with the GDA and obtain approval and any required permits from local authorities prior to closing or restricting any roads.

Barricades, danger, warning, and detour signs, as required, shall be erected before any roads are closed.

When roads are temporarily closed to public access, barricades or gates shall be used that are highly visible in day or night conditions. At a minimum, barriers shall be coated with reflective paint or be applied with highly reflective tape on both sides and be signed as “ROAD CLOSED”.

Affected roads shall also be posted with appropriate warning signs a minimum of 100 ft (30.5 m) before the barrier per W20-3, DNG-11, WRN-24, or other appropriate signs from the MUTCD or USACE Sign Standards Manual. Size and placement of signs depends on viewing distance and speed limit of roadway.

Vehicles or equipment that, by design, move at 25 mph (40 km/h) or less on public roads shall display the slow-moving vehicle emblem.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”12083″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][ultimate_heading main_heading=”Module 14 Quiz” margin_design_tab_text=””]Time for the final short quiz.
