TOPEKA (KSNT) – Several buildings and bridges across Kansas will be lit up in orange lights to help raise awareness on work zone safety for the week of March 23-27.

During this week, orange will be seen at all Kansas Department of Transportation’s District office across the state.

Orange can be also seen at several other locations including the Visitor’s Center at the Statehouse, the front of City Hall in Topeka and the Travel Information Center on I-70 near Goodland, just to name a few.

All this orange is part of KDOT and numerous safety partners’ efforts to participate in National Work Zone Awareness Week, a safety campaign that highlights the hazards and dangers highway workers and motorists face every day.

People are encouraged to participate in this safety campaign by wearing orange on Thursday, March 26, the official Go Orange Day! in Kansas. KDOT will also share blogs each day written by highway workers and law enforcement about their experiences in work zones. Links to these and other information can be found on the KDOT website at http://www.ksdot.org.
