What Is a Traffic Control Plan?

Traffic Control Plan in WashingtonTraffic control is one of the main reasons construction companies visit our online store. However, simply purchasing signs doesn’t constitute good safety measures for working in hazardous conditions. In order to ensure the safety of on-site personnel and the general public, you need to implement a smart and efficient traffic control plan in Washington.

A traffic control plan is a permitted plan that allows a contractor to redirect traffic through or around a construction site safely. The construction team and the drivers, cyclists, or pedestrians traveling through the work zone must be given equal consideration when developing a safe and effective traffic control plan.

In addition to meeting specific safety standards, the plan must also meet certain industry standards, including the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). This particular guideline indicates what type of signage, equipment, and apparel needs to be included in the plan. Each step and where each sign is placed will need to be carefully marked out ahead of plan submission to local or state entities.
