Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced a week-long effort by New York State's transportation and emergency response agencies to promote and support National Work Zone Awareness Week April 8-12. Throughout the week, staff from the Thruway Authority and State Police will visit the Thruway's 27 service areas as well as three Welcome Centers to interact with motorists and hand out educational materials regarding work zone safety and the Move Over law. At particular locations, Thruway crews will display equipment recently damaged in work zone incidents to demonstrate the dangers roadside workers face.
