Safety Tips

              Many large transportation construction projects are taking place in Northern Virginia.
              Although orange cones and barrels are a common sight throughout the area,
              it's important never to become complacent when driving through a work zone.
              If you spot an unsafe condition, call the Highway Helpline 1-800-367-ROAD or State Police #77
