"Our emergency patrols assist stranded motorists and get them out of harm’s way,” said SHA Administrator Melinda B. Peters. “The 24-7 expansion allows us to quickly respond to after-hours and weekend incidents as well as change flat tires and jump-start vehicles. The patrols are a wonderful customer service and more importantly, a critical safety program.”

Work Zone Safety

Hundreds of state employees, contractors and sub-contractors will be in work zones this season, delivering projects ranging from paving, bridge rehabilitation and regular maintenance as well as major roadway projects such as the Intercounty Connector. While SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes.
