Rolling Roadblocks

Rolling Roadblocks

Rolling Roadblocks for Short-Term Highway Construction, Maintenance, and Utility Work Zones.

When safely implemented, rolling roadblocks are a highly effective traffic management technique for temporarily slowing or completely stopping traffic upstream of short-term road work activities.

What is a Rolling Roadblock?

TMA Attenuator-Mounted Trucks are used as rolling roadblocks. They perform temporary road closure, pacing operation, or traffic pacing. It is a common highway safety traffic control technique used to protect road-workers and commuters by temporarily slowing traffic upstream of construction, maintenance, and utility work activities requiring a short-term or full-closure of the roadway.

TMA Attenuator-Mounted Trucks

We recognize that all TMA trucks are not built equally. It is no longer safe or sufficient to use a simple flatbed truck with a mounted attenuator on federal highways. SPA is dedicated to providing premium quality TMA attenuator-mounted trucks that perform at the highest standards required in work zone safety. Call SPA at (973) 347-1101 for more information, and prices.

Highway Work Zone Safety Trucks

Highway work zones are hazardous for workers who build, repair and maintain our streets, bridges, and highways.

Highway work zone safety trucks are a means to protect workers from motorists who have to drive through a complex array of signs, barrels, and lane changes. Download a checklist of measures to prevent worker injuries from vehicles and equipment from “Building Safer Highway Work Zones: Measures to Prevent Worker Injuries from Vehicles and Equipment” by NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health).

In either case, advance warning for drivers is of utmost importance to the safety of the operation.
