Summer Construction Work Zone Dangers

Posted on May 22, 2023

As construction crews take to the roads this summer, the chances for deadly work zone crashes are a continuing concern. A recent USA Today article shared the following trends from the National Workzone Safety Information Clearinghouse, based on statistics from a ten-year period.

The article noted that the trends may be continuing, as a crash in Maryland earlier this year killed six construction workers. The article cited slowing down, watching for changing traffic patterns, and using alternate routes when possible, as best practices for avoiding construction zone accidents.
