Lieutenant governors association recognizes National Work Zone Awareness Week with resolution

National Work Zone Awareness Week is April 11-15

This morning, the National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA) recognized the importance of roadway worker protection by unanimously approving a policy resolution recognizing National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW). 

While gathered at a conference in Washington, D.C., the NLGA’s Resolutions Committee approved the measure unanimously on Wednesday. The full NLGA voted its support today.

Delaware Lt. Gov. Bethany Hall-Long made remarks prior to the approval, noting how critical it is to raise awareness of workers in active work zones and how important it is to do everything possible to provide for safety while making infrastructure improvements.

The resolution was approved just in time for the Spring construction season. NWZAW is held each year just ahead of the kickoff of the construction season as a reminder to motorists to be alert for roadway workers. Statistics show that motorists and their passengers are at great risk in work zones as well as roadway workers.

This year’s National Work Zone Awareness Week is April 11-15, with a national kickoff event scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on April 12 in Hampton, Va.  The event will be livestreamed.
