Traffic Control Plans Unit
Overview
 
The Traffic Control Plans Unit develops the standards for traffic control plans for construction projects. When construction projects suspend the normal function of the roadway, a traffic control plan is developed to assure the safety of all road users, and the protection of workers. At the same time, the traffic control plan provides for continuity of the movement of motor vehicles, bicycle and pedestrian traffic while allowing for the efficient completion of the construction project.

Annual Work Zone Safety Audits

Each year the ODOT Traffic Control Plans Unit conducts statewide work zone audits for a large number of active highway construction projects.  During the audits, participants observe, comment and score each work zone based on the quality and application of the traffic control devices and measures being used for the project.  Scores and comments are tabulated, and a year-end Summary Report is generated as part of ODOT’s Traffic Control Quality Control/Quality Assurance program.  The Summary Reports for the last two years are included below.​

In The Zone Newsletter
 
The Traffic Control Plans Unit is adding to its communications toolbox through a regular newsletter to its customers.  In The Zone is intended to be an information sharing bulletin to keep clients up-to-date on traffic control plans-related news, events, and activities.  Manual updates, new technologies, news around the state, and a summary of upcoming classes and events are some of the articles you'll find.
