Driving in construction zones

Driving safely through construction zones can help protect our loved ones at work on construction sites.

  • Go slow in the zone – speed limits are often lowered in construction zones to keep workers safe around traffic and keep drivers safe from possible hazards
  • Stay alert and proceed with caution
  • Pay close attention to work zone flaggers and directional signs and/or devices
  • Keep a safe distance behind the car in front of you
  • Keep up with the traffic flow
  • Do not change lanes in construction zones
  • Avoid distracted driving including changing radio stations or using mobile phones
  • Keep an eye on workers and their equipment
  • Be patient – work zones are necessary to improve our roads and make them safer
