Local highway expansion project on schedule



• Slow down and always follow posted work zone speed limits. Speeding is one of the major causes of work zone crashes. Remember, traffic fines double in work zones.

• Pay attention. Workers and heavy equipment may only be a few feet from passing vehicles.

• Be patient. Delays from highway construction can be frustrating, but it only takes a few extra minutes to slow down for a work zone.

• Plan ahead. Leave a few minutes early when traveling through a work zone in order to reach your destination on time.
