With the weather warming up, construction is ramping up around highways and bridges throughout the state. Drivers should exercise caution in work zones, stay attentive and obey speed limits.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, a work zone crash occurred every 3.5 hours in Wisconsin last year even with the reduced traffic volume due to the pandemic.

Please stay focused and always watch for workers. Your good choices behind the wheel are good for everyone on the road. Every driver makes a difference.

The Wisconsin State Patrol has noted a sharp increase in citations for drivers exceeding 100 mph on our highways.
