Abstract

Traffic management in the highway work zones is a challenge for all traffic engineers. Road work zones are one of the most significant problems for the normal realization of traffic conditions, which can cause various consequences that will greatly reduce capacity and reduce the level of service. On the sections in the work zone, bottlenecks appear, which result in congestion, ie. lead to an imbalance of traffic demand and road capacity. This paper provides an overview of the literature and foreign experiences and ways of regulating traffic in the work zones on the highway. Bearing in mind that we are talking about roads of the highest rank, where are sections with work zones, it is necessary to maintain a satisfactory level of service by applying the concept of regulation that will minimally interfere the normal realization of traffic conditions.
