As the weather warms up and construction ramps up across the state, the DOT is stressing work zone safety

That’s why Governor Walker proclaimed April 11th through the 15th as Work Zone Awareness Week in Wisconsin. The aim is to prevent crashes that take the lives of motorists and highway workers.

A major point of the campaign is making sure drivers focus on the road.

To promote safety in Outagamie County – officials will focus their campaign on road workers’ families— giving faces to the workers’ loved ones.

Outagamie County’s highway commissioner said the national conversation this year will be focused on the phrase – ‘don’t be that driver.’

Last year in Wisconsin — three highway workers were killed in work zone accidents.
