National Work Zone Awareness Week 2009

on .

"Drive to Survive - Our Future Is Riding On It"

April 6-10 marks the 10th anniversary of National Work Zone Awareness Week.  The national campaign is conducted every year at the start of the construction season to attract national attention to drive carefully through highway construction and repair sites. Each year, approximately 1,000 people are killed in roadway work zones and, with the recent enactment of the President’s economic recovery package which supports a good deal of highway repair and construction funding, 2009 could be one of the most active highway repair seasons in recent memory. The national kick- off media event takes place Tuesday, April 7 at 10 a.m in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The slogan for the 2009 event is “Drive To Survive – Our Future Is Riding On It.” To view activities from past years events, click here
