Highway patrols increased for Work Zone Awareness Week

Colorado celebrates National Work Zone Awareness Week

To mark the beginning of the road construction season and to prevent further incidents, the 19th annual National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) has launched and will run through April 13. With the push to rebuild the nation's infrastructure there are thousands of workers on sites across the country building and repairing bridges, highways, tunnels and more, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) reported.

"Please pay attention and drive safely in work zones", said MoDOT Chief Engineer Ed Hassinger. There will be work zones along Interstates 70, 44, 64, 55, 270 and on U.S. Route 65.

"When we're out there, again, we've got to be engaged, we've got to look for people that are on the side of the road, doesn't matter who it is, slow down, move over, that is the message", said Mark Segerstrom, the Nebraska Safety Council's Road Safety Project Coordinator.
