ATSSA and The Foundation: Working Together To Make Zero Deaths A Reality

The new design was unveiled in February 2017. Originally unveiled in April 2002, "The National Work Zone Memorial - Respect and Remembrance: Reflections of Life on the Road" program is a living tribute to people killed in work zones. The Memorial travels to communities cross-country year-round to raise public awareness of the need to respect and stay safe in America's roadway work zones.
