TxDOT has recognized the need to require a refresher course for those managers and supervisors who are designated as contractor’s responsible person (CRP) or alternate CRP and are responsible for setting up and operating construction work zones on state-owned roadways. The Refresher Course for Contractor’s Responsible Person (HWS415) provides a review of TxDOT-compliant training in basic work zone traffic control setup and maintenance for CRPs. The participant will receive refresher training on the importance of complying with the Texas Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices and updates on all relative TxDOT standards that apply to TxDOT roadways, including the Interstate System.
