This 20-hour course is required for personnel with the responsibility or authority to decide specific maintenance of traffic requirements to be implemented on the roads in the State of Florida. These positions include: the Engineer responsible for the work zone traffic control plan development, and the work zone control Supervisor. Prerequisites: One year experience in work zone traffic control or responsible for work zone traffic control plan development.
The course is designed to train those who will be actively involved in designing temporary traffic control in a work zone. It moves from the concepts and techniques taught in the Florida Intermediate course to the implementation of traffic control plans and techniques for installation and removal. Attendees are taught how to read and interpret plans and specifications and implement them in the field. Several workshops included in this course are designed to provide hands on experience in designing temporary traffic control for various real life situations and recognizing, analyzing and correcting deficiencies. These workshops also afford the opportunity for students to learn to work together as a team and to present solutions to the class. Instructors will spend time with each workshop group providing direction and advice to the groups as they work on their assignments. A further objective of this course is to instruct the attendee in proper and effective documentation in the event of a dispute or possible litigation.
