ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

MISSION AND HISTORY.

The Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Nevada is committed to fostering a culture of safety within roadway and highway construction work zones. With extensive involvement in road construction projects in Reno, Sparks, and Washoe County, Nevada, we recognize the importance of safeguarding both workers and the traveling public in work zones, including the dangerous challenges posed by impaired, distracted, and aggressive driving.  

 

Construction workers’ lives are at stake. According to the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), there were more than 7,000 crashes in work zones in Nevada over the last five years. Seventeen Nevadans lost their lives due to work zone crashes during the same time period. This is unacceptable and preventable. Roadway and highway workers live and work here in our communities and they deserve a safe work environment so they can go home to their families and loved ones at the end of the work day. That’s why we’re launching a public awareness initiative: Respect the cone. My family needs me home.  

We’re asking for the community’s help to keep roadway and highway construction workers safe. The dedicated workers who repair and reconstruct our roads are improving your commute and they need your help to stay safe in the cone zone.

We remain steadfast in our commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of all individuals within Nevada's work zones. Let's work together to make our roads safer for everyone.
