National Work Zone Awareness Week

Construction season is upon us for 2019….

This week is National Work Zone Awareness Week. The theme this year is “Drive Like You Work Here”

We will have a great number of construction projects occurring all over the City again this year. Many have already started. In addition, our own crews will be setting up work zones and performing work on our infrastructure that puts them at risk if drivers are not paying attention. It is crucial that every driver be alert and slow down as we travel through work zones. Here are just a few reminders when you start to see orange signs, barrels and cones:

• Slow down
• Eliminate distractions & Pay attention
• Merge as soon as possible
• Do not follow too closely
• Expect delays

Please take a few minutes to review the attached information and share with your employees, family and friends as a reminder of what to do when in a work zone area.
