In an effort to lessen the risks associated with highway construction, a National Highway Work Zone Clearinghouse was initiated in March. This outreach organization, created to improve safety at road construction sites, is in conjunction with the DOT Secretary Rodney Slater’s commitment to ensure transportation safety is DOT’s highest priority. The Clearinghouse provides a variety of information on work zone safety, including best practices in design, contractor and worker safety training programs, public awareness and materials on safety products. In most cases, the information is provided free of charge.
