Implementation of Transportation Management Plan (TMP) in Puerto Rico
Maldonado Díaz, Lina E.
The Puerto Rico Department of Transportation is committed to provide an efficient and safe flow of traffic in highway projects. The Transportation Management Plans provide the best strategies to mitigate the work zone impacts in significant projects. Since 2007, Puerto Rico ensures the mitigation of these strategies by implementing the Work Zone Safety and Mobility Policy. The policy establishes the goals, objectives and minimum requirements to develop and implement Transportation Management Plans in Puerto Rico. This report evaluated the policy, past and on-going transportation management plans; and compared the procedures used in Puerto Rico with other states. A policy implementation guideline is recommended to provide uniformity and consistency in future plans. Key Terms - Mobility, Safety, Transportation Management Plan (TMP), Work Zones
