“Drive Like You Work Here” theme of National Work Zone Awareness Week

Event focuses on safe driving through highway work zones

Posted March 20, 2019

April 8-12 marks National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW), an annual spring campaign held at the start of construction season to encourage safe driving through highway work zones. This year’s theme is “Drive Like You Work Here.”

The American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) says the key message is for drivers and truckers to use extra caution in work zones, as well as for road workers to exercise caution.

In addition to the national event, many states host their own NWZAW events. The national kick-off event, to be held April 9, will be hosted by the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) in Washington, D.C., at the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge.
