April 27: Work Area Traffic Control Manual Updated


The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure revised its Work Area Traffic Control Manual, which provides a uniform set of guidelines for highway projects and contracts on all provincial roads. Any work that takes place within the right-of-way of a provincial road must conform to the guidelines prescribed by the manual. Training and trucking companies, department employees, contractors and anyone involved in traffic control should review the manual for the updates, which took effect Jan. 1, 2016.
