Rolling Operations

Rolling Operations

A rolling operation is a temporary traffic control method that removes traffic from the roadway work zone activity area, allowing road work to be performed by slowing or stopping traffic prior to the work area. The rolling roadblock effectively closes all lanes of traffic prior to the work zone. This is accomplished by using Truck Mounted Attenuators (TMA) to create a gap between traffic and the work area so that short-duration construction activities can be performed. When appropriately planned and executed, rolling operations are a useful traffic control strategy to add to your work zone toolbox.
