2021 NATIONAL WORK ZONE AWARENESS WEEK

DRIVE SAFE.  WORK SAFE.  SAVE LIVES. 

Governor Tony Evers has proclaimed the week of April 26 through April 30, 2021 as National Work Zone Awareness Week in Wisconsin. There are typically more than 300 state highway and bridge improvement projects, in addition to other municipality-sponsored construction projects scheduled across Wisconsin every year that require work zones.  Last year, Wisconsin recorded more than 1,800 work zone crashes that resulted in 665 injuries and 17 fatalities.  Road workers, like all workers, have the right to a safe work environment, and all drivers have the obligation to exercise caution when traveling through work zones.  So, the State of Wisconsin joins road workers throughout Wisconsin and the United States in advocating for safe driving in work zones. 

FOLLOW THE LAW.  Slow down and move over, if possible, when you see flashing lights. 

Additionally, remember that texting and driving is illegal throughout the state, and it's illegal to talk on a handheld cell phone while driving through a work zone.  

PLEASE GIVE UNDIVIDED ATTENTION TO THE ROAD!
