National Work Zone Awareness Week April 3-7, 2017
March 31, 2017 | wcha-admin
Wednesday, April 5, is “Go Orange Day,” in which people are asked to wear something orange in support of highway safety.
Work Zone Awareness Week is sponsored by federal, state and local transportation officials to draw attention to the safety needs of road workers during construction season. Generally, crashes occur when drivers speed through a work zone, do not pay attention to changing road conditions, run into other vehicles or highway equipment or drive off the road completely.
See the Federal Highway Administration’s “National Work Zone Awareness Week” webpage here, complete with flyers and fact sheets.
