ADOT employees explain why work zone safety matters

Yesterday we emphasized your role as a driver in helping keep work zones safe for you and your passengers. Today we're introducing you to the highways workers responsible for building and maintaining Arizona’s highways. These and other videos are appearing on ADOT's Facebook page throughout this week, and we hope stories from these and other ADOT employees drive home the importance of work zone safety.

ADOT strives to make transportation personal and asked highway workers across Arizona to share their personal story of work zone safety. They see close calls all the time and many have even witnessed crashes in the work zone. Everyone interviewed asked drivers to slow down and obey signs posted in the construction zone.
