Sharing in Work Zones

A work zone is any type of road work that may impede traffic conditions. Many work zones involve lane closures. They may also be on the shoulder or in the median. Moving work zones such as sweepers or snowplows are also quite common. There are a number of events that make up a work zone. They can be long term projects or short term actions. A work zone can also exist at anytime of year.

It is up to you to ensure both your own and the workers' safety by driving slowly through work areas. The highway worker's life is in your hands .

Avoid road work zones altogether by using alternate routes, when you can. And, if you know can't avoid them, follow the tips presented in this unit to make your travels through work zones safer.

If you know there is going to be road construction on a route you must travel, allow extra time for your trip. Travel during non-peak traffic hours. Share a ride or car pool to reduce congestion in the work zones.
