Work Zone Project Maps
Summer Time means Construction Time in Oregon. Many roadway projects take advantage of the nicer weather to upgrade, upkeep, and upscale the Oregon driving experience.
So, when you see orange, slow down and expect delays. As construction ramps up across the state, keep an eye out for work zones, pay attention and watch your speed. It could save a life.
Oregon experienced an average of 331 work zone crashes involving injuries each year between 2014 and 2018, with an average of 24 of those crashes each year involving serious injuries or deaths. During that time span, 3 highway workers were injured in those crashes and 1 was killed. Statistically, far more Oregonians are injured and killed than the workers in the work zones, so slow down…your life DOES depend on it.
Distracted driving causes the majority of work zone crashes, followed by speeding and driving too fast for conditions. Oregon State Police encourages drivers to always drive safely, obey speed limits, and to be especially attentive when you see orange, for highway workers and work zones. Help everyone stay safe and healthy. Slow down and pay attention in work zones. Not only in the summer, but year round.
