Use caution and drive safely.

If possible, use alternate routes.
Remember as you travel through the work zone, to reduce your speed, adjust your lane position away from workers, and prepare for the unexpected.

Allow extra time for your trip and if possible, use an alternate route. Projects may cause some inconvenience, but the benefits will be a safer and more efficient roadway system.

Watch for road signs and articles in local newspapers to
keep you informed. Your patience and cooperation is sincerely appreciated

 

 

DOUBLE FINES will be imposed for violating any regulatory speed limits in work zones or in school zones. Fines are also double for failing to reduce speed when passing by a stopped emergency vehicle with its lights flashing.

When an EMERGENCY VEHICLE is approaching you, move to the closest shoulder without crossing the path of the approaching emergency vehicle. You may proceed when the emergency vehicle passes you. If you are approaching a stopped emergency vehicle with its lights flashing, immediately reduce speed and, if it's safe to do so, move over in your lane away from the stopped emergency vehicle. Drivers should actually change lanes if there are two or more lanes in the same direction and there are no vehicles in their path.
