National Work Zone Awareness Week 2020 is scheduled for April 20-24.  This year’s theme is Safe Work Zones for All: Protect workers. Protect road users. It features a poster reminiscent of the World War II poster with Rosie the Riveter. In her place are a male and female roadway worker proclaiming, “We Can Do It!”, which is the original language used in the WWII poster.
Michigan chose that image as a reflection of its industrial heritage. Original “Rosies” worked as riveters in an aircraft factory in Ypsilanti, Michigan that built B24 bombers, which is now the site of the American Center for Mobility (ACM).

This year’s NWZAW kickoff is hosted by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and will be held in Ypsilanti on April 21 at the ACM.
