While active work zones can be an inconvenience, especially during peak traffic times, it’s important to remember that speeding through a work zone endangers the lives of crew members, other motorists, and yourself. In order to avoid any inconveniences, plan an alternate route in advance to avoid unfavorable traffic conditions.

Motorists can find relevant travel information at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration that would affect their route. This would allow motorists to avoid active work zones altogether and avoid speed changes, lane closures, or any other aspect of a work zone that could affect travel times.
