AGC Launches New Highway Work Zone Safety Effort
Recent survey shows increase in reported work zone crashes
Forty-four percent of highway contractors reported that motor vehicles had crashed into their construction work zones during the past year, according to the results of a new highway work zone study conducted by the Associated General Contractors of America.
