Every year, National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) helps bring attention to safety in work zones across the country. This year, we celebrate NWZAW April 9th - 13th, and the 2018 theme is "Work Zone Safety: Everybody's Responsibility".
Show your support for Work Zone Safety by wearing orange on April 11th!
In February 2018, CDOT Maintenance Operator Nolan Olson lost his life after being struck by a vehicle while working on State Highway 160. To honor Nolan and all others lost in the line of duty, CDOT hosts a Remembrance Day, and asks the public to wear orange on Wednesday, April 11th.
These days, it seems like construction is happening on every street and highway - if you are driving and encounter a work site, please take caution! Observe reduced construction speed limits, and do not drive distracted.
