Signs of a highway work zone
Highway work zones are marked by an orange sign with a black image of a worker on it. Other signs will follow, including a black and white speed limit sign.
For major construction projects on our busiest highways, gates and rumble strips will also alert you when you're entering a work zone. These are used to improve driver awareness.
You'll know you're approaching the end of a work zone when you see a sign like this:
Slow down ... it's the law!
It's simple, don't speed. Slow down to the speed on the speed limit sign, no exceptions. If you are caught speeding in a work zone past highway workers or equipment, you will face hefty fines.
For more information, visit the SGI website.
Don't see any workers?
Just because you don't see any workers, doesn't mean there aren't any hazards. Hazards can include a rough road, sharp drop off the pavement, loose stones, etc. So, for your own safety and that of our workers, slow down!
