Enhanced Speed Compliance for Work Zones

Project Description

The goal of this project is to deploy and evaluate a mobile system that can be used by state patrol officers to safely conduct manual on-site speed enforcement in work zones.  The system takes advantage of a detection and monitoring system already developed for MnDOT and the State Patrol as part of the Enhanced Red Light Enforcement (ERLE) system in St. Cloud, MN.  The proposed work zone site or sites will be jointly selected by MnDOT and the State Patrol.  The AECOM Team will be responsible for the design, development and deployment of the system,  as well as data collection, monitoring and reporting.

Project Benefits

  • Improve officer safety during speed violation enforcement outside of the work zone
  • Improve work zone safety for field maintenance staff and for travelers
  • Enforcement approach is consistent with existing state law
  • System is portable and provides for easy setup and an intuitive user interface
