"Work Zone Safety: We're All In This Together"
National Work Zone Awareness Week is held annually to bring attention to motorist and worker safety, as well as mobility issues in work zones.
The 2013 theme highlights the complexities of work zones, and the need for awareness and planning on the part of everyone affected by work zones including: State departments of transportation, road workers, drivers, bicyclists, motorcycles, pedestrians, emergency responders, law enforcement officers, and utility workers.
The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) National Highway Institute (NHI) offers a series of Design and Traffic Operations courses that provide best practices to help professionals plan, design, operate, and maintain highway work zones that improve safety for workers and the driving public. These courses will help practitioners consider work zone safety and mobility through all project phases.
