In 2016 ACNM was approached by members of NMDOT with suggested updates to the Traffic Control Log Books. The suggestions for improvement were based on common issues encountered from completed traffic control diaries, and were given in the interest of addressing language that could reduce errors in filling out the document.
ACNM took the next step by forming a panel with representatives from NMDOT, ACNM staff, barricade companies, and ACNM contractor members. Revisions to the original suggestions were made by the panel, and a proposed draft was given to the ACNM Executive Director, the Traffic Control Master Instructor, and the Acting State Construction Engineer. After incorporating their input, a final draft was created, and sent to the printer for estimates.
