During the summer maintenance season, all major road construction and maintenance work requires safe and secure construction zones.

Members of the public are asked to also do their part to keep workers safe and to abide by safety measures. The cooperation of the public is critical to the safety of those who work on the road. Please slow down when approaching construction zones and adhere to all posted signage.
