B4−2: Work Zone Safety Round Tables
Twice a year work zone safety representatives from Virginia Department of Transportation's nine districts meet with work zone safety personnel from the Department's Central Office to review and discuss the Department's Work Zone Safety Program. The format allows each district to discuss and share general or specific work zone problems and concerns, as well as best practices and/or solutions to problems encountered in their district. The day−and−a−half to two−day meetings have been conducted since the spring of 1990.
