Gov. Justice urges safe driving in Work Zones as state begins massive 2023 highway construction season

April 23rd, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Gov. Jim Justice kicked off  the 2023 highway construction season earlier this week, reminding drivers to slow down and pay attention in work zones. The Governor was joined by state and federal officials, as well as a representative from the West Virginia Contractors Association.

"On every street corner, we've got orange cones, workers everywhere, and the roads are improved," Gov. Justice said. "Now, Is it too much to ask that workers deserve to be able to get their dinner bucket, go to work, and deserve to go home safely? It only takes one wrong turn, and we have a catastrophe. I'm 100% supportive of our Work Zone Safety campaign, because lives are on the line.”
