Worker Safety

Federal Highway Administration

As our highway infrastructure ages, many highway agencies are focusing on rebuilding and improving existing roadways. This means more roadwork is being performed on roadways that are open to traffic. At the same time, traffic continues to grow and create more congestion, particularly in urban areas. To avoid major queues during peak travel periods, urban areas are seeing more night work. The combination of more work done alongside traffic, heavier traffic, and greater use of night work can result in increased safety considerations for highway workers. There are regulations and available resources that can specifically help workers perform their jobs safely.
