GDOT stresses work zone safety

National Work Zone Awareness Week is April 9 through 13 National Work Zone Awareness Week is April 9 through 13

For instance, workers have reduced some sections of Government Street down to one lane.

"The behaviors that we commonly see in work zones are rear end collisions, that's by far the most common", said Wisconsin State Patrol Lt. Colonel Steven Krueger. But, it also doesn't hurt bringing attention to the topic through an awareness week.

The awareness campaign began in 1999, and is traditionally held near the start of every spring construction season and is dedicated to promoting safe driving practices, particularly while driving through work zones.

Across the nation, 765 people were killed in work zones. In 2015, in addition to motor vehicle-related fatalities (the majority of which were in construction zones), 35,500 people were injured in work zone crashes, as reported in the 2017 edition of the National Safety Council's Injury Facts.

"We are working to reduce the number fatalities to zero", Buchanan said. "Pay attention and don't be distracted", he said.

Ron Sanders, First Sergeant with the Tom Green County Sheriff's Office; Cade Solsbery, with the San Angelo Police Department; and Sergeant Justin Baker, with the Texas Department of Public Safety, were at the event and sharing the perspective of law enforcement when it comes to safety in work zones.

Federal statistics are in line with Kentucky's work zone fatality numbers that indicate motorists are more at risk in a work zone. Justin Sundell, a senior maintenance worker at MoDOT said he lost a colleague past year while being hit on the job.

"It hits home for me very, very much so and I think about it all the time and I don't ever want to go back to that, ever again", Sundell said.

Expect the unexpected, especially in work zones.
