Please be slow down through highway construction projects. It makes a huge fifference to us if vehicles are pasing by at 50 MPH or 70MPH. Often times there is nothing between us other than an orange cone and a few feet. It is frustrating for all of us to be stuck in contruction but it is not worth losing lives over. Thank You for looking out for us. We appreciate your patience.
