The Work Zone Safety and Mobility Rule was published in the Federal Register on September 9,2004, indicating that all state and local governments that receive Federal-aid funding are required to comply with provisions ofthe rule no later than October 12, 2007. The rule updates and broadens the regulation initially published as 23 CFR, Part 630, Subpart J which provided guidance and established procedures to assure adequate consideration is given to motorists, pedestrians, and construction workers on all Federal-aid construction projects. The changes as noted in the Federal Register encourage broader consideration ofthe safety and mobility impacts of work zones across project development, and the implementation of strategies that help manage those impacts during project delivery. Each highway agency is required to develop and implement procedures consistent with the provisions of the rule and the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. Primary features to be included in the agency's procedures are as follows: 1) systematic approach to implement and sustain work zone safety and mobility policies, 2) work zone assessment and management procedures, 3) work zone crash and operational data, 4) training for personnel involved in work zone management and traffic control, and 5) assess effectiveness of work zone safety and mobility procedures with perfonnance of a process reVIew.
