Associated General Contractors of America Launches Radio and Media Campaign to Urge Summer Travel Motorists to Slow Down and Be Alert amid Growing Concerns with Highway Work Zone Crashes and Fatalities

In response, association officials have launched a new radio and media campaign urging drivers to slow down and remain alert in highway work zones.
