AGCA Launches New Highway Work Zone Safety Effort

2017 Highway Work zone Safety Survey

Forty-four percent of highway contractors reported that motor vehicles had crashed into their construction work zones during the past year, according to the results of a new highway work zone study conducted by the Associated General Contractors of America. As a result, association officials launched a new national advertising and outreach campaign to urge motorists to stay alert and slow down while driving through highway work zones.

“There is no meeting, email, or text that is more important than the safety of workers or motorists,” Stephen E. Sandherr, chief executive officer for the association. “It is absolutely essential for every driver to slow down, pay attention and put the phone down while driving through highway work zones.”
