A work zone is a designated area on a street or highway where construction is performed. You will notice distinctive orange and black signs providing warnings such as "Begin Work Zone" or "Flagger Ahead." Here is what you can do to ensure safety:
Be prepared to stop
Follow directions of flaggers
Keep up with traffic flow
According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, there are an average of 25 people (our friends, co-workers, family members) who die each year in North Carolina alone. Do your part to help protect those working in work zones along our streets and highways.
