Work Zone Traffic Control Manual

"Work Zone Traffic Control Manual" is intended to provide minimum standards for the protection of road users and workers during temporary works relating to highway maintenance and construction, including utility and other operations. This manual provides a single source for traffic control standards for use on Manitoba's highways.

Please note: the stand-alone document entitled "Work Zone Traffic Control Manual" is an integral part of the Department's construction specifications book and forms part of the Specifications for Traffic Control. These specifications are intended to cover general construction procedures widely used for work in highway and bridge construction. Any deviations from these contents will be incorporated in the "Special Provisions" of the tender documents.
