Spring is here and soon construction and maintenance work zones will be popping up like daffodils across the region. To cap off National Work Zone Awareness Week from April 9-13, employees from MoDOT, St. Louis County, the Missouri Highway Patrol, construction industry partners and their families will run, walk and jog in the fifth annual Work Zone Awareness 5K Run/Walk in Chesterfield on Saturday, April 14.
The goal is to help motorists remember that construction season is underway and to watch out for workers in those highway construction and maintenance work zones.
Races begin at 8 a.m. at the MoDOT Transportation Management Center, 14301 S. Outer 40 Road in Chesterfield. Participants receive a race T-shirt, medal and a drawstring bag. Awards will be presented to male and female overall winners, and age category winners. To register for the run, visit athlinks.com/event/work-zone-5k-2018-132863. The cost is $15.
