2019 National Work Zone Awareness Week
This week is National Work Zone Awareness Week. A work zone is an area where road construction, maintenance or utility work takes place. Safety for crews in work zones, as well as the vehicles that travel through them, is critically important. Drivers must be on the watch for workers coming in and out of work zones, including flaggers who may be directing traffic patterns. On average, over 700 fatalities occur in work zones each year. Help protect our employees by giving workers extra room, slowing down as you approach work zones and avoid distractions.
