Work Zone Safety 2011 MassDOT is focused on safety for workers and the traveling public as a top priority and supports the 2011 National Work Zone Awareness Week, April 4-8.   The Work Zone Awareness Week each year brings national attention to motorist and worker safety and mobility issues in work zones.  The Federal Highway Administration sponsors the week with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, American Traffic Safety Services Association, and other transportation partners.

This year's National Work Zone Awareness Week theme is " Safer Driving. Safer Work Zones. For Everyone."

In keeping with the focus on Work Zone Safety, MassDOT in 2011 is initiating a Work Zone Speed Monitoring Program.

The Work Zone Speed Monitoring Program will monitor the speeds of vehicles traveling through work zones on limited access highways using electronic field monitoring of speed and volume information in the work zone. MassDOT  will use speed trailers over a period of 3-4 weeks for monitoring speed within several work zones along limited access highways, with advance notice of speed enforcement by the Massachusetts State Police provided to motorists via message boards.  More information will be made available when the monitoring program begins.  Learn more on the web about the 2011 National Work Zone Awareness Week.
