Gov. Brownback participates in the Go Orange effort along with work zone committee members.
On Thursday, Governor Sam Brownback signed a proclamation declaring April 7-11 Work Zone Awareness Week. Work zone safety is important all year long, but this is an effort to raise awareness to the dangers associated with highway construction work zones and to educate people on what they can do to improve safety.
We are encouraging everyone to support this effort by wearing orange. Please send us your "Go Orange" photos. You can tweet them to us by using the hashtag #goorangeks or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out our Flickr page here to see all the photos we've received.
