Field Evaluation of Flashing Arrowboards at Freeway Work Zones. This report documents research conducted in the evaluation of flashing arrowboards when located in advance of lane closure work zones.

The effects of supplemental arrowboard placement were compared to the effectiveness of the arrowboard placement normally used by District 14 of the SDHPT. The results of controlled field studies conducted by the Texas Transportation Institute to evaluate the effectiveness of flashing arrowboards located in advance of lane-closure work zones are reported.

The distances in advance of the work zone ranged from to ft.

The studies revealed that CMSs can be used at lane closure work zones to encourage more drivers to vacate the closed lane(s) farther upstream of the cone taper. However, CMSs should not be used in place of flashing arrowboards at these work zones.SAFETY EVALUATION OF SEQU ENTIAL WARNING LIGHTS IN 1 NIGHTTIME WORK ZONE TAPERS 2 3 Carlos Sun*, Ph.D., P.E., J.D.
