MoDOT Hosting National Work Zone Awareness Week April 17-21

The Missouri Department of Transportation wants you to do your part in saving lives in work zones during this construction season.

MoDOT is hosting “National Work Zone Awareness Week” on April 17-21, urging motorists to make smart, safe driving choices behind the wheel to protect everyone.

In 2022, Missouri saw fewer work zone protective vehicle crashes and fatalities.

Work zone crash fatalities also decreased to 15, compared to 17 the year before.

Crashes with protective vehicles sporting a truck or trailer-mounted attenuator totaled 36 in 2022, a decrease of 25 from the previous construction season.

Over the past three years, truck or trailer-mounted attenuator crashes resulted in 75 injuries and two fatalities.

MoDOT says these crashes are almost always a result of drivers being distracted behind the wheel or driving too fast for the conditions.

In 2022, distracted driving contributed to more than 400 work zone crashes.

Additionally, 71 percent of those killed in work zone crashes were not wearing seat belts.
