The Tennessee Department of Transportation is joining states across the nation to remind motorists to expect the unexpected in highway work zones. TDOT will spread that message statewide during National Work Zone Awareness Week (March 23-27) in an effort to improve safety in Tennessee’s interstate and highway construction and maintenance work zones. “Work zones include everything from your major interstate widening projects to pothole patching and mowing, and conditions in those areas can change quickly,” said TDOT Commissioner John Schroer. “That’s why it’s so important for drivers to pay attention to signs, reduce their speeds, and move over when possible.” The spring and summer months provide perfect weather for highway work, and motorists will encounter work zones across Tennessee in downtowns, along interstates and in rural areas. Last year in Tennessee, 17 people died in work zone crashes, with 14 of those being drivers or vehicle passengers. Work zone safety messages will be displayed on TDOT’s overhead Dynamic Message Signs on interstates in Memphis, Nashville, Chattanooga and Knoxville. There will also be special displays across the state to honor the 109 TDOT workers lost in the line of duty since 1948.
