At any given time there are more than 150 major road work zones across North Carolina, according to state transportation officials. These work zones are not only on major highways but also on secondary roads and North Carolina routes. When drivers approach a work zone, it is imperative that they slow down and pay close attention to the road to ensure construction workers' safety. When they fail to do so, tragic construction workers' accidents can take place.
North Carolina officials are increasing safety measures at a multi-million dollar construction site in Moore County. Charlotte residents may be aware of the project which will widen about seven miles of the highway. It began late last year and is expected to continue until mid-2014.
