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