WORK ZONE SAFETY

INTRODUCTION

Did you know the top three causes of work zone fatalities are speeding, following too closely and distracted driving? Eliminating these dangerous driving habits will help keep you and others safe. Work zones change frequently, and many new ones may be put in place as the construction season continues. We urge drivers to check for work zones before travelling by using our app, checking traffic advisories or a map of current work zones at www.odot.org or viewing current traffic conditions at www.oktraffic.org.

 

We want to thank drivers for paying attention in work zones, obeying the speed limits and leaving adequate distance between themselves and workers and other cars.
