National Work Zone Awareness Week
April 17-21, 2023
National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) is an annual campaign held at the onset of construction season to encourage safe driving through highway work zones. The underlying message is for drivers to be alert, be aware of their surroundings, and exercise caution when driving in work zones. When you’re approaching roadway construction, slow down, move over, and don’t zone out!
