Pay Attention! Work Zone Ahead

June 23, 2014

As we gear up for our July 4 and beyond summer travels, remember, we’re not the only ones on the road. Tens of thousands of men and women—many who are members of the Laborers (LIUNA), Operating Engineers (IUOE), Electrical Workers (IBEW) and other unions—go to work every day on construction and repair projects on and along our highways, roads and bridges. Pay attention!  

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 609 people died in highway work-zone crashes in 2012—an increase of 19 fatalities compared to 2011.
