Safety During Street Construction Work

While driving in the City this fall, you will encounter crews working in and around various streets and alleys. Please slow down and use extra caution in work areas while crews are performing construction or maintenance work to improve and extend the useful life of roadways.

Drivers may encounter temporary obstructions, lane closures, or other traffic control measures in work areas to ensure the safety of work crews, pedestrians, and traffic. Remember the following tips when traversing a work zone:

  • Slow down
  • Obey all traffic laws and temporary signage that may be in place
  • Be cautious and courteous to other drivers
  • Be understanding and patient with traffic control and maintenance personnel

Please do not stop to talk to the crew, as this will slow down the completion of work and create further congestion and traffic delays.
