Spring weather comes with reminder to drive safely in work zones


With the spring weather come the flocks of construction crews along state roadways.

This week is National Work Zone Awareness Week. The purpose is to remind drivers to be safe and pay attention in work zones. 

“Everybody here is a mother, a father, a brother, and a sister,” Travas Deal with Colorado Springs Utilities said. “So anytime you’re in a work zone, my guess is everybody has somebody that they know or love that is in the construction industry. Not even with utilities, but any number of construction types of work. So make sure that you’re giving them the same respect as you’d want your family members to have.”
