AGC Joins Work Zone Awareness Week Kick-Off Event
April 7, 2009
The 10th annual Work Zone Awareness Week began this week, and includes events around the country to raise awareness of the importance of highway work zone safety. An event outside Washington, D.C., featured a tour of an AGC member project site led by Michael Hart, Cianbro Construction Corp.
Local media attended the event and captured AGC's call to reduce the number of highway work zone fatalities by fifty percent within the next two years. On average, 1,000 people are killed each year in highway work zones, and AGC's CEO Steve Sandherr noted that it should not cost a life to rebuild a road or repair a bridge.
