    Washington – National Work Zone Awareness Week is April 15-19, and a kick-off event is scheduled for 10 a.m. on April 16 at an urban work zone in Washington, D.C.

    This year’s theme, “Work Zone Safety: We’re All in This Together,” represents how work zone safety is the responsibility of all roadway users – law enforcement, emergency response personnel, pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and roadway workers, according to a press release from the American Traffic Safety Services Association.

    Scheduled guest speakers at the kick-off event include Rep. John J. Duncan Jr. (R-TN) – vice chairman for the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee – and representatives from the Federal Highway Administration and the District Department of Transportation.

    National Work Zone Awareness Week is coordinated by ATSSA, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, and FHWA.
