TRAFFIC CONTROL PLAN and
SITE-SPECIFIC TEMPORARY TRAFFIC CONTROL PLANS
Temporary Traffic Control Plans specify what traffic control devices and traffic safety measures are needed to protect construction workers and the traveling public. A properly designed TCP will prioritize public safety and consider construction costs, project budgets and project schedules. The key in designing a safe and practical TCP depends on various work zone factors.
- What type of work is being performed?
- Does your project require a short term or long term traffic control setup?
- Is your project a stationary work zone or mobile operations?
Traffic Control Plans play an important role in providing a safe and efficient flow of traffic. Construction work that encroaches the public right of way requires an encroachment permit and an approved Traffic Control Plan from the public agency having jurisdiction. Most temporary traffic control work zones can be separated into four critical areas: the advance warning area, the transition area, the activity area, and the termination area. The design of these areas is based on the posted speed limit which will determine the spacing of your advance warning signs, taper lengths, buffer zones, and the need for crash-worthy barrier protection.
A general Traffic Control Plan will identify the placement of traffic control devices in the roadway. This includes:
- Construction area signs
- Cones, channelizers, delineators, plastic traffic drums
- Type I, Type II, Type III barricades
- Water-filled barrier, concrete K-rail
- Crash cushions, crashworthy attenuators
- Truck-mounted Attenuator (TMA truck)
- Temporary ADA curb ramps
- Portable Transverse Rumble Strips
- Flagger placement
- Flashing arrow boards
- Portable changeable message signs (PCMS boards)
- Temporary pavement tape
- Specialty signs, custom signs
- Radar Speed Feedback Signs
- Automated Flagger Assistance Device (AFAD)
BATS Traffic Control Plan
BATS provides both stamped and non-stamped TCP’s. BATS TCP’s are engineered site-specific in AutoCAD to show all existing conditions, proposed conditions, and drawn to scale. Our plans conform to the latest version of the California Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (CA MUTCD), the Caltrans Standard Plans and Specifications, and the California Temporary Traffic Control Handbook (CATTCH). BATS Traffic Control Plans are customized to meet local agency standards and guidelines. Additionally, BATS also provides customers with traffic control templates (Typical Applications – Chapter 6 of CA MUTCD) for encroachment permits not requiring site-specific TCP.
Local expertise is one of the many assets that distinguishes the members of our design team. With over 20 years of combined experience, BATS traffic designers have successfully worked with hundreds of municipalities in California including San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, and Caltrans.
Typical Traffic Control Plan measures:
- Sidewalk Closure + Pedestrian Detour or Pedestrian Diversion
- Shoulder Closure / Parking Lane Closure
- Bike Lane Closure (Share the Road!)
- Lane Shift
- Single Lane Closure / Multilane Closure
- Freeway Closure, Ramp closure
- Reversible Lane + Flaggers
- Road Closure + Detour
Permitting /Encroachment Services
Encroachment permits are often required for any work on Federal, State, County, or City roads, facilities, property, or easements. Compliance with agency regulations is critical to mobilizing on time and completing the job without interruption.
The BATS Team is well experienced in compiling street-use and encroachment permit packages, facilitating discussions with government agencies, and helping our clients understand and implement the nuances of permitting guidelines.
Among several local, county, and government entities, our permitting facilitators routinely pull easements for the following agencies:
- City of Berkeley
- City of Fresno
- City of Oakland
- City of San Francisco
- City of San Jose
- Contra Costa County
- Fresno County
- Sacramento County
