Work Zone Safety Awareness Week is coming up, but when? What will Lexington residents expect? Why is there an awareness week?

April is the unofficial start of the construction season for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

This is an annual campaign from KYTC to show visible community support for raising work zone awareness. They invite residents to help in assisting road crews and making the roadways safer for workers.

KYTC is urging companies and individuals to assist with this campaign by pledging to illuminate the following with the color orange of this particular week:

  • Buildings
  • Landmarks
  • Bridges
  • Structures
  • Homes

The goal of this initiative is to encourage motorists to drive without distractions and to slow down once entering a work zone.

There is a pledge form the cabinet is urging people to fill out if they plan to participate. You can fill that form out here.

If you or your company plant to participate in this campaign, the KYTC asks that you take a photo and post it to their Facebook or Twitter account and use the hashtag #glowky.
