The following exceptions will apply:

  1. Emergency work authorized by the region engineer.
  2. Work authorized by the region engineer on relocated or detoured sections that do not interfere with traffic.
  3. Work authorized by the region engineer when the contractor’s operation does not adversely affect traffic flow.
  4. Additional suspension periods due to project-specific mobility issues.

The hauling of earthmoving equipment, trucks, etc., either on or across public roads, is not to be permitted. For projects being constructed under traffic, the work must be scheduled to eliminate one-way traffic restrictions wherever possible and provide for the safe movement of holiday traffic. The condition of temporary routes, including signs and barricades, must be checked for potential traffic hazards and conformance to requirements. Any deficiencies noted shall be directed to the attention of either the construction/project engineer, TSC manager, or region construction engineer for appropriate action.

Inspection by the region traffic engineers is to be requested to inspect all projects where traffic is maintained for conformance with signing and traffic safety requirements. Every precaution should be taken to eliminate hazards and minimize inconvenience due to road and bridge construction activities.

Lane closures are to be eliminated wherever possible and practical. Lane closures that must remain are to be communicated to the Office of Communications as soon as possible prior to the holiday.
