Work Zone Safety

Fallen Worker Memorial

Highway work is one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. Since 1992, transportation accidents have been the leading cause of on-the-job deaths in the United States. It’s important to remember that roadside workers have families they hope to return to after each day of work.

Everyone plays a role in maintaining a safe work zone area during roadway construction. To do your part,
follow these work zone safety tips when traveling through a work zone.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation’s memorial is dedicated to the memory of our fallen workers who lost their lives in service to transportation in Mississippi:
