It has been a busy season for road construction in Durham Region this summer, and DRPS is reminding motorists to be patient while it continues into September.
We would like to remind drivers of the importance of driving carefully in construction zones. Fines are doubled in construction zones and speeding through these areas can put the construction workers at risk.
The Region of Durham is working hard to keep construction zones safe and reminds residents not to move or obstruct barriers or pylons as they are there for a reason. It’s particularly important to have these barriers up at night, especially when there are no workers present.
The road construction is particularly heavy along the 407 Highway corridor, and we want to thank residents for their ongoing patience.
