The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority (OTA) and Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) are partnering to recognize National Work Zone Awareness Week. The annual campaign raises awareness and encourages safe driving through construction work zones.
There are events across Oklahoma to help raise awareness for safe driving in work zones and reduce the number of collisions:
April 5: “Game of Cones – Safety Always Wins” display, featuring a throne of traffic cones, will be at Woodland Hills Mall in Tulsa.
April 9: Remembrance ribbons representing 61 fallen ODOT workers to display in Lawton.
April 12: The throne will display at Penn Square Mall.
