Orange is the color of the week. Several buildings and bridges across Kansas will be lit up in orange lights this week of the 8th through the 12th for National Work Zone Awareness Week. Orange lights will be seen at the following locations:
The Kansas Department of Transportation’s District offices in Topeka, Salina, Norton, Chanute, Hutchinson, and Garden City, as well as several KDOT Area offices, the Governor’s Mansion in Topeka, the Amelia Earhart Memorial Bridge in Atchison, and several other Topeka offices and buildings.
This “Go Orange” movement highlights the dangers faced by highway workers and motorists in work zones and promotes safer behaviors. People in Kansas are encouraged to wear orange this Thursday the 11th, our state's official Go Orange Day.
