For the location of traffic control devices, the Bureau of Operations determines the initial placement and the road designer ensures that the proposed location is compatible with the roadway design. 3.

TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report Guidance for the Selection, Use, and Maintenance of Cable Barrier Systems provides guidance to highway agencies on the selection, use, and maintenance of cable barrier systems to reduce serious injuries and fatalities as well as operational costs. All crash cushions meet the crashworthy requirements of NCHRP Report and are approved for use on the national highway system. Redirective crash cushions. Non-gating, and bi-directional; Ideally suited for roadway hazards such as the ends of rigid barriers, tollbooths, utility poles, etc. Designed for maximum safety and reusability.

A traffic management plan is usually required to outline the traffic hazards, and specify the measures needed for traffic control. A traffic management plan can be defined as: “the strategies designed to safely mitigate the impact of construction, rehabilitation, maintenance, incident management and special events on roadways to maintain mobility and worker safety.” (From: British Columbia.
