Highway construction season is here, and ODOT is reminding you to take it easy in the work area. Rhonda Pees says that’s especially important in the I-75 construction zone in Findlay. However, data gathered by the State Highway Patrol shows most drivers aren’t taking the work zone speeds seriously…
Pees says it’s important to pay attention to the variable speed limit signs on the interstate…
Pees says if the beacons are on and the speed limit is 55, then workers are behind a barrier. If the beacons are off there are no workers in the construction area and the speed limit is 60 miles-per-hour.
ODOT held a press conference in Findlay Friday to highlight the importance of looking out for construction workers along the highway. This is National Work Zone Awareness Week.
