Washington State Department of Transportation held a ceremony Wednesday to remember the 60 Washington workers lost on the job since 1950, honor workers injured on the job and remind drivers to be aware in work zones. The vast majority who died were working in marked roadway work zones.
Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib spoke at the annual Worker Memorial ceremony, which included families of fallen workers, WSDOT staff, Washington State Patrol, state officials and industry partners. This week marks National Work Zone Awareness Week.
