Certainly, this isn’t an exhaustive list and construction, maintenance, and paving projects will be happening elsewhere, too. We at The Herald, alongside the City of Hillsboro, remind you to slow down for safety and offer the following friendly, roadwork zone tips:
- Keep your physical distance from work crews.
- Obey all speed and warning signs.
- Use alternate routes if possible.
- Be alert and look out for all road users (cell phones and driving are never a good combination).
- Maintain adequate distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you.
- Stay clear of construction vehicles.
- Stay calm and be kind.
Drive safe and enjoy that sunshine, Hillsboro!
