Work Zone Safety
There are hundreds of Work Zones in Maine each year, ranging from short-term activities such as work on utility lines, tree trimming, mowing and ditch clearing, to longer term road reconstruction projects. Work Zones can be found anywhere - on the Interstate, at bridges, hundreds of highways and secondary roads, and even city streets. They all have one thing in common, though – they require travelers to be extra careful.
MaineDOT wants everyone to be safe in Work Zones, so we have developed several strategies to help increase awareness of work zone safety concerns for all road system users. It begins with our own employees – in addition to our ongoing training programs, we hold an employee contest. We reach out to the traveling public through our partnerships with WGME TV13 ( Portland ) and WABI TV5 ( Bangor ) with Flash, the MDOT Road Model, providing safety tips, plus we hold a radio contest with prizes.
Perhaps the most fun activity is our work with Maine kids in our highly successful 4 th Grade Work Zone Safety Poster Contest, which ends with a news conference in early April featuring the Governor, who unveils the winning entry, which is selected from seven finalists highlighted on the. Below are links to Work Zone crash data and other informational and educational resources. We hope you find this material to be informational, and that it helps you to help us improve the safety of our work zones year round.
