Trafic Control Setup and Removal

F-1. Temporary traffic control zones are to be set up by utilizing the following:

Furthermore, the PATA drawings shall be utilized in lieu of a MUTCD Typical Application when roadwayconditions are similar (For example, PATA 306 and PATA 603 would have precedence over MUTCD TA-35 for a mobile operation on a multi-lanehighway).

F-2. Guidelines for installation and removal of traffic control setups:

F-3. Shadow Vehicle and Impact Attenuator information can be found in Publication 46, Section 6.11. In conjunction with any temporary traffic control zone, shadow vehicles:

F-4. An optional three cone advance setup may be used to alert oncoming traffic to a flagger location. If used, the cone located nearest to the flagger should be placed on the roadway centerline directly across from the Flagger Symbol (W20-7) sign. Place two additional cones upstream equally spaced at a distance of 10' to 50'. If additional cones are desired, one may be placed on the roadway centerline directly across from advance warning signs. Refer to PATA 002 for further guidance.

F-5. Consider using temporary longitudinal barrier to protect workers in all multi-lane work zones if the speed limit is 45 MPH or greater, workers are present within one lane width of an active lane, and a lane or shoulder is closed continuously for more than three days. Refer to Publication 72M, Roadway Construction Standards, for barrier installation details.

F-6. Paved shoulders may be used for traffic if they are structurally sound, have sufficient width and depth to safely support traffic, and are free of debris. Shoulders that will be used for traffic in conjunction with long-term operations may require extra attention, such as:
