With a busy work season approaching, PennDOT is reminding residents of the importance of driving safely around work zones.
To do so, the Jefferson County Maintenance Office in Punxsutawney recently hosted the PennDOT Worker Memorial, which pays tribute to the more than 84 PennDOT workers killed on the job since 1970.
It was created in 2001 by PennDOT employees in Bradford County both to honor the workers and to raise awareness among motorists of the potential consequences of driving inattentively in work zones.
