National Work Zone Awareness Week Kickoff Event

Work zone related crashes are preventable yet they cause hundreds of deaths and injuries every year. For 15 years a group of public, private and non-profit transportation organizations have collaborated to support National Work Zone Awareness Week, a campaign to increase public awareness and save lives. The effort has blossomed into a movement that involves transportation departments in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. This Transportation TV News Update provides special coverage of this year’s kickoff event held in Arlington Co. VA, and it highlights the personal story of Teresa Keen. Keen’s husband a Virginia Department of Transportation employee died while on the job in 2012.​
