616.14 Traffic Control for Non-Motorized Traffic.jpg

Where existing bicycle or pedestrian facilities or pathways will be affected by roadwork, the needs of bicycles and pedestrians are to be addressed in the TCP. Use the following guidelines if temporary pedestrian facilities are needed:

  • Pedestrians are not to be led into direct conflicts with worksite vehicles, equipment or operations.
  • Pedestrians are not to be led into direct conflicts with mainline traffic moving through or around the worksite.
  • Pedestrians are provided with a safe and convenient path replicating as nearly as possible the most desirable characteristics of existing sidewalks or footpaths.
  • Part VI of the MUTCD contains additional information on handling pedestrians in work zones.
