Discuss the elements for a work zone traffic control plan as defined in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Choose a simple, single-lane closure plan. Draw out the plan by hand or use a drawing/painting computer program and label the necessary signage so that it is understood what signs need to be used. The speed of the work zone is 45 mph in a rural area. Distances between signs should be 500 feet. This information can be found online by doing a simple search with your search engine. Choose the images section and then choose the single-lane closure plan to help you create your own plan.
