Each year in the spring, National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) is held to bring national attention to motorist and worker safety in work zones. There has been a heartbreakingly high number of fatalities and injuries in work zones on Michigan roads over the past few years and the motoring public needs to hear from us. This year’s theme, “Work Zones Are a Sign to Slow Down,” emphasizes the importance of motorists driving safely to ensure that we all work together to save lives in work zones.
To kick off the 2022 construction season, MITA, along with partners from the Michigan State Police, MDOT, ATSSA, and MIOSHA are hosting a National Work Zone Awareness Week news conference and public event to promote safety and to honor the workers, motorists, and families of those killed in work zones. Please save the date and join us to promote safety in our work zones. The NWZAW event will take place at 11:00 AM on Monday, April 11th, 2022, at the office of C.A. Hull in Commerce Township, Michigan.
