April 19- 23 is National Work Zone Awareness Week

For the 11th straight year, three federal agencies will sponsor National Work Zone Awareness Week.

Why should we care?

Well, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation, there are around 7000 motor vehicle accidents in work zones each year throughout the state, with 2100 people injured and 29 deaths (2 being workers, most work zone fatalities are non-workers). Indiana’s Dept. of Transportation has compiled similar, scary statistics.

Sponsors are Three Federal Agencies

Through the coordinated efforts of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA), various activities will be undertaken to draw attention to the need for everyone being safe and aware of safety issues in all sorts of work zones.

Theme is “Work Zones Need Your Undivided Attention”

The theme for 2010 National Work Zone Awareness Week is “Work Zones Need Your Undivided Attention.” All sorts of events are scheduled around the country during April 19-23, 2010, promoting this theme. One of the biggest will be the federal agency kickoff at Battery Park in NYC, and there are already several activities scheduled throughout the states of Illinois and Indiana throughout the Week.
