Agencies Combine Efforts to Enhance Safety for Motorists and Workers

The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), New York State Police (NYSP) and Associated General Contractors (AGC) joined today to deliver their annual message on the importance of worker and motorist safety in construction and maintenance work zones.

“Work zones are busy places with a variety of trades and equipment all working in unison to improve our transportation infrastructure,” said NYSDOT Regional Director R. Carey Babyak. “In doing this work, workers face the possibility of being killed or injured inside the work zone due to driver error or inattentiveness. Those who work to improve our roads and bridges should be afforded to the opportunity to do so in a safe work zone.”
