Indiana: Industry Leaders Call For Safety Improvements In Road Construction Work Zones

Indiana Constructors, Inc. President Richard Hedgecock says it’s not just construction workers who are impacted. State data shows 11 drivers and four passengers died in work zones during the past fiscal year.

“The vast majority of the accidents that occur in work zones are with the traveling public, the individuals who are driving into the work zones, and those are where the accidents occur and frankly where most of the injuries occur,” Hedgecock says. “It’s not to the workers as much as it is the drivers.”
