National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) is an annual spring campaign held at the start of construction season to encourage safe driving through highway work zones. The key message is for drivers to use extra caution in work zones.
The theme for National Work Zone Awareness Week 2015 is “Expect the Unexpected.” This was the original theme used 15 years ago in the national event that was created to focus attention on work zone safety and work zone workers. Since the creation of the national campaign by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), ATSSA and AASHTO, the number of work zone fatalities has dropped significantly. Please visit the website of ATSSA, American Traffic Safety Services Association for more information.
Please remember to slow down when you approach any work zone. Let them work, let them live!
