CDOT Celebrates Safety Awareness
CDOT is committed to providing safe and efficient transportation system not only during National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW), but all year long. With spring comes the start of road construction season and the key message to drivers is “Use Extra Caution in Work Zones.”
Even if workers are not visible in work zones, motorists should still expect narrowed or closed lanes, traffic shifts and reduced speed limits as well as other conditions that might affect normal travel.
