A comprehensive review of the current state of the practice in planning, coordinating and scheduling of work zone activities was conducted, and example tools and methodologies used by some state agencies were summarized. The research team also conducted an in-depth review of the two major computer tools developed for work zone coordination, the CIA tool by WSDOT and the WISE tool by the FHWA. The team identified the advantages and limitations of each tool and discussed the needs and requirements for NYCDOT/ NYSDOT for adopting these to be used in work zone coordination activities.
