National Work Zone Awareness Week: U of M research on work zone safety


Along with warmer temperatures, April is a month to celebrate transportation, with Distracted Driving Month, National Bike to Work Day, and National Work Zone Awareness Week, which ends today.

University of Minnesota researchers have focused on work zone safety in a number of research projects. One current project is sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) and led by civil engineering researcher Chen-Fu Liao. The goal of the project is to develop a smartphone app to assist pedestrians with visual impairments to navigate around work zones.
