F. The needs of operators of commercial vehicles such as buses and large trucks should be assessed and appropriate accommodations made.
G. Public Information - Improved road user performance may be realized through a well-prepared and complete public relations effort that covers the nature of the work, the time and duration of its execution, its anticipated effects on traffic, and possible alternate routes and modes of travel. Such programs can encourage the use of alternate routes, thus allowing consideration of temporary lane closures for additional buffer space.
