Cost and Funding
This stretch of Interstate 5 is in the eleventh year of a 9-11 year life cycle. There are ruts in the vehicle wheel paths that are causing a risk of hydroplaning during rain events.
This project is one of a series of work zone safety pilot projects that will be scheduled during 2018-2020. The goal of these safety pilots is to identify and implement construction staging and other techniques to reduce worker exposure to traffic, while maintaining freight mobility and limiting traffic congestion and delay. Data gathered from these pilot projects will provide lessons learned and aid in the development of best practices to be used on future projects.
This project includes a number of work zone safety features:
- Smart Work Zone Queue Warning
- Temporary Transverse Rumble Strips
- Rolling Slowdowns for Set-up and Removal of Traffic Control
- Radar Speed Trailers
- More Separation from Work Zone
- Continuous Police Enforcement When Workers are Present
