3-23-message-mondayMarch 23-27 is National Work Zone Awareness Week - "Expect the Unexpected."

This year’s theme was the original theme used 15 years ago in the national event that was created to focus attention on work zone safety and work zone workers. Since the creation of the national campaign by Federal Highway Administration, American Traffic Safety Services Association and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, the number of work zone fatalities has dropped significantly.

Still more can be done. Last year, Iowa had 350 work zone crashes where nine people were killed. Check out today’s video and ask yourself if you expected it to end the way it did. Think about this when driving through Iowa’s work zones this construction season, and expect the unexpected.
