Driving through construction zones is necessary. New roads are built to improve traffic flow. Other roads need to be maintained to give you a smooth and safe drive. However, we know that construction will affect your drive time and experience. The 3 'S' checks will help you arrive safely at your destination.
- Slow down when you approach a work zone; It comes faster than you think
- Follow posted speed limits, even if there are no workers present.
- Resume normal speed when the signs instruct you to do so.
- Leave at least 2 seconds between you and the car in front of you. If you stop, make sure you can see their rear wheels.
- Do not pass on the shoulder of the road.
- Don't make a point with tailgaters by slamming on your brakes. A collision won't solve anything.
- If it's construction season, plan your route so you know where construction is occurring.
- Expect delays. Leave extra time so you don't need to worry about running late. Check the North Dakota Department of Transportation’s Travel Information Map for where to expect delays.
- Driving lanes are often close together during construction zones. Avoid all distractions like cell phones and changing music stations.
