Each year in the spring, Work Zone Awareness Week brings attention to motorist and worker safety – to encourage safe driving through road work zones. Work Zone Awareness Week this year is April 8-12.

Work zones play a key role in maintaining and upgrading our city streets, as well as state and interstate highways. Unfortunately, daily changes in traffic patterns, narrowed rights-of-way, and other construction activities often create a combination of factors resulting in crashes, injuries, and fatalities.

The key message for Work Zone Awareness Week is that drivers must use extra caution in work zones to keep themselves and others safe. In short: Drive like you work here.
