In response to National Work Zone Awareness Week, the Washington State Department of Transportation is going orange this week. The week is about transportation and safety groups reminding drivers why they should slow down and pay attention when driving through work zones. And that the construction folks out there put their lives on the line every day.

Here’s what WSDOT is doing this week.

The best way to be safe in work zones starts with knowing where they are, so you can slow down in advance or plan alternate routes around them. That’s where the website comes in. It’s got information on all area road construction projects, as well as the projects marked on maps, and links to local live traffic cameras. Check it out please.
