National Work Zone Awareness Week


For the 11th straight year, three federal agencies will sponsor National Work Zone Awareness Week. The sponsors are the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA).

This is important because according to the Illinois Department of Transportation, there are around 7000 motor vehicle accidents in work zones each year throughout the state, with 2100 people injured and 29 deaths (2 being workers, most work zone fatalities are non-workers). Indiana’s Dept. of Transportation has compiled similar, scary statistics.

Various activities will be undertaken to draw attention to the need for everyone being safe and aware of safety issues in all sorts of work zones.
