Work Zones: What Do the 4 Es Need to Know?

July 12, 2017
8:00 a.m. - 9:15 a.m.

About the Presentation

On any given day, there are hundreds of active work zones in Minnesota. How can we possibly make work zones safe for everyone? What do enforcement, education, and emergency medical services have to do with work zones? This presentation will discuss work-zone safety and its related challenges, unintended consequences, and best practices, as well as what's being done behind the scenes to make work zones safer.
