Highway Work Zone Accidents

Construction and rehabilitation projects are increasing in number and frequency as our nation’s infrastructure grows and existing facilities age. When construction or utility work alters the normal operation of a roadway, care must be taken to provide for the continued mobility of motorists and pedestrians while allowing workers to complete their tasks.
Work zone signs

From coast to coast, our engineers have been retained to investigate and evaluate traffic maintenance issues in work zones. Because of our specialized training, we understand the variables in evaluating a work zone, including the duration of the work, the location of the work, the type of roadway facility, and any special demands for site-specific factors.

Our highway work zone expertise includes:

  • Forensic investigation
  • Roadway geometry
  • Safety principles
  • Guidelines for traffic control
  • Traffic control devices
