work zone Work Zone Safety Working Group
The Work Zone Safety Working Group is made up of transportation professionals from the North Central Texas region. The purpose of the Working Group is to investigate the use and effectiveness of strategies that could possibly reduce the number of fatalities and injuries that occur in work zones.  Possible strategies include: increased police enforcement, moveable barriers/alternative barriers, more informative signage, technology in work zones, protective trailers, portable stoplights vs. flaggers, speed limit modifications, worker visibility, public education, LED lights on signs, and no cell phones in work zones.  An analysis of crashes from 2007 that occurred in construction zones in Collin, Dallas, Denton, and Tarrant Counties was also performed – Crash Data Analysis
