National Work Zone Memorial

In 2002, the American Traffic Safety Services Foundation (ATSSF) unveiled the National Work Zone Memorial as a living tribute to those who have lost their lives in work zones nationwide. It travels to communities across the country to raise public awareness of the need to respect and stay safe in America's roadway work zones.
