Spring and summer weather means we’ll soon see the emergence of the orange construction barrels on the state’s roadways. MoDot says that’s a reminder to slow down and use caution as you drive through the many construction zones that will be popping up. Next week is National Work Zone Awareness Week. Since 2012 there have been 59 fatalities resulting from work zone accidents. That includes 16 in 2017 alone. There were an additional 3800 injuries during that same time period. Since 2000, 13 MoDot workers have been killed in workzone accidents.
