The 21st Annual New Jersey Work Zone Safety Conference will once again be held at the Livingston Campus Student Center, Rutgers University on April 7, 2020.  Sponsored by the Division of Highway Traffic Safety and developed by the Work Zone Safety Partnership, the conference promotes work zone safety awareness on local, state and authority roadways for a multi-disciplinary audience of construction, engineering, public safety, maintenance and operations personnel.

Some 300 people are expected at this year’s event, which will include a presentation focused on streamlining work zone safety documentation through a phone application, a presentation on attenuators, and a keynote presentation delivered by Bradley Sant, a Professional Engineer with the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA). Sant will be speaking about the dangers of internal work zones – which account for approximately 50% of all work zone fatalities. The conference will conclude with a panel discussion on the best practices and importance of preconstruction meetings, and  a presentation on the role of police in work zones.

As part of the program, the New Jersey Work Zone Safety Excellence Awards will be presented to recognize inspiring efforts of individuals, companies and roadway agencies that have demonstrated effective temporary traffic control in planned work zones on New Jersey roadways.
