MDOT Fallen Workers Memorial 2017-Recap
MDOT joined FHWA, AASHTO and ATSSA in recognizing the first week of April as National Work Zone Awareness Week. MDOT is taking this observance one step further and recognizing the entire month of April as Work Zone Awareness Month. Throughout the month, MDOT will be focusing on the need for safety when approaching and traveling through work zones in an effort to reduce the number of fatalities in Mississippi work zones. MDOT construction and maintenance crews put their safety on the line every day while performing their job duties. No matter who much training they receive or how well a work zone is set up, our crews still rely heavily on the traveling public to help keep them safe.
