On Track Project Update: April 15, 2024


National Work Zone Awareness Week

April 15-19 is National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW), an annual spring campaign held at the start of construction season to encourage safe driving through highway work zones. INDOT works to create safe environments on and off the road for construction staff and contractors, as well as the traveling public. Drivers should slow down, use extra caution, keep their eyes on the road, and limit distractions when traveling through work zones. 

Join I-69 Finish Line as we recognize this important week. For more information, visit: nwzaw.org
