It’s National Work Zone Awareness Week

It is National Work Zone Awareness Week. In 2023, Kentucky recorded 1,251 crashes in highway work zones where 247 people were injured and 17 lost their lives – nearly triple the number of fatalities in 2022. 

Year after year, most of the work zone crash victims are motorists.

Distracted driving was a factor for nearly 42% of work zone crashes last year.
