Get this from a library. Guidelines for the application of arrow boards in work zones. [Jerry L Graham; Donald J Migletz; J C Glennon; United States. Federal Highway Administration. Traffic Systems Division.] -- The purpose of the study was to develop criteria for the use and placement of arrow boards in work zones.

The research was conducted in three phases. work areas, guidelines for the application of the devices, and typical application diagrams. This handbook gives the basic principles and provides examples for the design, application, installation, and maintenance of the various types of traffic control devices used File Size: 1MB.

This handbook presents information and gives examples of typical traffic control applications for two-lane and multilane work zones. This information is intended to illustrate the principles of proper work. 2 Work Zone Traffic Control doc Warning Signs • The minimum size of all diamond shaped warning signs is 48" x 48".

• Reflectorized signing is required. • All warning signs may be equipped with an orange or day-glo flag mounted above the sign. • Type A warning lights will not be required with the use of roll-up signs.

• The “advance signing sequence” consists of three signs. This report is a synthesis of research findings and current practices in the selection and application of arrow panels in work zones. The information presented here is based on a review of research re More.

Flashing Arrow Boards are routinely used in advance of active work zones to designate lane closures on multi-lane highways. Application of available technology could report the location and operation of Flashing Arrow Boards without requiring significant time of agency staff.

Purpose. Equipment Website: Link to URLVendor: Transline Industries, Zone Topics: Arrow Panels. Work Zone Speed Limit Guidelines View document: Traffic Control in Work Zones: Guidebook to improve use of speed limits to control vehicle speeds through street and highway work zones.

Proper and uniform application of these speed limits should improve the safety of the highway worker and the traveling public. Online Guidebook: 25 pages. Wanco is your source for solar arrow boards, for roads and highways, traffic calming, work zones and more.

Arrow Board Specifications. We are proud of the quality of materials and workmanship of our arrow boards. K&K Systems’ Vehicle-Mounted Arrow Boards are designed for areas that require alerting traffic to use extreme caution temporarily.

Vehicle Mounted Arrow Boards are available in 14, 15, and 25 lamp models with mounting options for over the cab, rails, skid, and hitch. We have developed the industry's first wireless arrow board - TruWireless. When arrow boards are used to close multiple lanes, a separate arrow board shall be used for each closed lane.

Guidance. When arrow boards are used to close multiple lanes, if the first arrow board is placed on the shoulder, the second arrow board should be placed in the first closed lane at the upstream end of the second merging taper Fig. W|ECO Folding Frame Arrow Boards are highly reliable, visible from distances of a mile or more, and employ a unique high-efficiency power system.

The folding-frame design pivots the display panel up to the vertical position when deployed, and down to horizontal for transport. Arrow Board Mounts and More No matter where or how you are planning to use these boards, Trans Supply has what you need to make them work.

We have mounting and power lift kits that fit all sizes of arrow boards and signs. Our message boards come with industrial-grade trailers that will give years of dependable service. integration of Arrow Board messages into traveler information systems.

The intent of this document is to be utilized by MnDOT during the integration process (Arrow Board notifications to traveler information systems), as well as for developing a systems engineering analysis for requirements testing purposes.

Arrow Boards are temporary traffic control devices used to control traffic, give advanced warning of lane closures, and or guide traffic through work zones or a traffic congested area.shown in Table 1, work zone accidents in Texas decreased steadily from to but increased again in Table 1 presents work zone accident data for various types of TxDOT operations, such as construction, maintenance, utility work, and work zones.The use in work zones of ITS technology, such as portable camera systems, highway advisory radio, variable speed limits, ramp metering, traveler information, merge guidance, and queue detection information, is aimed at increasing safety for both workers and road users and helping to ensure a more efficient traffic flow.
