Work Zone Awareness Week April 9-13, 2018

April 9 through 13 is National Work Zone Awareness Week, and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is encouraging motorists to take a vested interest in work zone safety by navigating through without distractions.

To help prevent future work zone crashes, the Transportation Cabinet asks drivers to practice three work zone safety tips: pay attention, respect flaggers, and slow down.
