    Safety - Reduce crashes and fatalities through continuous improvement of traffic management systems and procedures. Reliability - Optimize travel times on transportation systems in critical corridors to ensure travelers are reaching their destinations in the amount of time they expected for the journey.   The primary roadside vegetation management objectives are in relation to traffic safety and preservation of the highway infrastructure. Additionally, as a landowner WSDOT is required to control all listed noxious weeds that occur on the right-of-way by state law (RCW and ).

    INDOT maintains more t acres of medians and roadsides along Indiana’s roadways and strives to balance safety, costs, environmental protection, and aesthetics when maintaining roadside vegetation. INDOT’s vegetation management focuses on improving safety along highways by maintaining vegetation at a safe height for driver visibility. 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.

    Maintenance Manual Chapter: Record of Revisions - Volume 1: Contents: Table of Contents: Chapter 1: Organization and General Details: Chapter 2: Resource Management: Chapter 3: Laws: Chapter 4: Equipment: Chapter 5: Blasting: Chapter 6: Sampling and Testing Materials: Chapter 7: Traffic Control, Safety and Convenience of Traffic: Chapter 8. This book provides an up-to-date description of road maintenance management. Written primarily from a management perspective, it provides new insights into the relationship between the various functions involved in managing a modern road network.

Start the inspection by providing details of the project, speed limits and expected traffic conditions. Active management is required in most scenarios to create a safe roadside. This includes roadside and landscape management programs and activities.

Roadsides are areas between the outside edges of the shoulders and the right of way boundaries exclusive of areas occupied by other highway facilities.

appropriate traffic management strategy is “encourage.” These roads have the following attributes: • Subject to the requirements of Highway Safety Act and Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). • Highest traffic volume and speeds. • Typically connect to State and county roads.

Usually the largest potholes under heaviest traffic. INDOT is incorporating many changes in its roadside maintenance operations to enhance roadside heritage and protect native plants and wildflowers.

These include: Reduced mowing: Mowing of roadside vegetation beyond the Safety Clear Zone (30 feet from pavement or to ditch) during the growing season is being reduced, allowing wildflowers to bloom.

The results of more than 1, road safety evaluation studies are summarised in this book. It covers the whole spectrum of road safety measures, ranging from highway engineering and traffic control, through vehicle design, driver training, public information campaigns and police enforcement.

Current practices used by state departments of transporttion to design and manage the urban freeway roadsides (UFRs) environment is the focus of National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis Landscape Development and Management Practices for Urban Freeway Roadsides.
