Information for Drivers
About 800 people, most of them motorists, are killed in roadway work zones every year. Work zones can be dangerous for both construction workers and motorists. They require extra caution on the part of drivers. It is important to remember that speed limits are posted during road construction to keep workers safe. Slow down when you enter a work zone and let workers do their job and stay safe. This page is intended to provide information to help you drive through work zones safely.
