Today wraps up the final day of Work Zone Safety Week, with the Missouri Department of Transportation reminding all drivers to slow down and pay attention in work zones. Area Engineer Bob Lynch tells us when you enter a work zone you may encounter rumble strips…….
Lynch said the idea of the rumble strip is to get your attention when entering a work zone. Any time you enter a work zone you should immediately slow down, and prepare to stop at any given time. According to MODOT, serious accidents can happen while traffic is stopped in a work zone so everyone should be alert.
