National Work Zone Awareness Week

American Traffic Safety Services Association

National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) is an annual spring campaign held at the start of construction season to encourage safe driving through highway work zones. The key message is for drivers to use extra caution in work zones. NWZAW is April 15-19, hosted by the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT). Learn all about the 2024 theme and poster, find the schedule of events, access event and promo guides, and more.

National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) has been successful in spreading awareness for work zone safety across the country because of participation from organizations and individuals just like you. Hundreds of companies and individuals reach out to ATSSA on social media each year using #NWZAW.

The 2024 weeklong commemoration included:

Work Zone Safety Training Day – April 15

National kickoff event – April 16
