On April 7-11, we will recognize 2014 National Work Zone Awareness Week. TxDOT activities across the state will provide an opportunity to educate the public on the hazards of traveling through work zones, and I invite all of you to participate by attending these events.
As I look back on 2013, I am proud of the many accomplishments that TxDOT and AGC have achieved together, and I am encouraged by the way we addressed challenges that we faced. In 2014, I look forward to a continued effort to improve the highway construction industry and the Texas transportation system.
For those who work dangerously close to speeding traffic in work zones, one of the most important laws to pass the 83rd Texas Legislative session was the expansion of the state’s Move Over/Slow Down law.
Over the past month, I have had the opportunity to attend local AGC meetings in Abilene, Houston and El Paso. The major issue discussed at each of these meetings continues to be safety, which is my favorite topic. I appreciate AGC’s emphasis on this top priority.
