KDOT Asks Drivers for Caution in Construction Zones

It’s road construction season and the Kansas Department of Transportation is urging drivers to use caution in construction zones. Max Dirks is a KDOT worker from Hays who was in a close call when a semi truck came into a work zone too fast.

“I stepped over into the other lane to try to get the semi to stop and I saw he wasn’t going to get stopped. I radioed the other flag men and just dove into the ditch to avoid being hit,” says Dirks.
Dirks says when you see a road construction sign, put down your phone, stay aware and slow down. KDOT says four people in Kansas were killed in work zones last year.
