Minnetonka, MN—May 27, 2009— SignCAD Systems, Inc. announces the release of ConeZONE™ Design Module, an economic software solution for designing temporary work zones, which promotes worker and driver safety and improves traffic mobility. Initially introduced as a prototype in 2007, ConeZONE Design Module is now widely available to deliver automated, instantly-compliant work zone design and management solutions at state, city and county levels.

ConeZONE, in its design stage, has won numerous prestigious awards from the traffic and safety industry. Utilizing the same DynArrange system and CAD basis as SignCAD, ConeZONE develops layouts of work zones based on programmed state requirements-resulting in dimensionally accurate layouts that comply with MUTCD Part VI standards, the national standards for traffic control devices on all streets and highways. ConeZONE generates work zones in three easy steps:

  1. Select MUTCD work zone type and parameters
  2. Load state base map or aerial photograph of work zone
  3. ConeZONE automatically plots devices and spacing intervals

Once layouts of work zones are developed, ConeZONE is capable of generating a tabulation sheet on quantities and specifications of all approved devices used within the work zone. Additionally, this software solution offers work zone planners the ability to:

  • Modify for road conditions and safety aspects with dynamic updates
  • Manage stages and phases of multiple projects
  • Track and manage all devices in every active work zone
  • Coordinate information among agencies, contractors and engineers

This simple solution is integrated with SignCAD™, SignCAM™ and SignTRACK™, and it provides an efficient, cost-effective answer for work zone design and planning.
