With the weather warming up, more orange barrels will be appearing on Ohio roadways. In an effort to keep roadside workers safe, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and the OHio Department of Transportation are joining other state and local transportation agencies across the United States to mark National Work Zone Safety Awareness Week.
Since reaching a high in 2015, work zone crashes have been trending downward in Ohio. In 2018, there were a total of 4,662 crashes in work zones. The top factor continues to be following too closely. Nationally, speed is a factor in more than a quarter of all deadly work zone crashes. Ohio law requires motorists to move over a lane for all roadside workers. If they cannot move over, drivers should slow down.
