Update on the 1-75 project ⬇️
Hitting the road this week? These are good tips for navigating work zones.
Construction season is in full swing, which means you may encounter orange barrels on Kentucky roadways. Here are some tips to help navigate work zones safely:
- Plan your route before you go. Check goky.ky.gov or the app for up-to-date traffic and construction information.
- Slow down when in a work zone. Look for reduced speed limit signs.
- Avoid distractions. Focus on the zone, not your phone.
- Always buckle up.
Safe driving means that everyone on the road, behind the wheel or a barrel, gets home safely.
