Work Zone Safety
National Work Zone Awareness Week: April 9 - 13, 2018
"Work Zone Safety: Everybody’s Responsibility"
In 1998, VDOT kicked off spring construction season by launching a week-long campaign promoting safety among work zone workers and drivers. The idea soon spread to other state DOTs and was officially adopted by the Federal Highway Administration in 1999.
