New Work Zone Law to Help Motorists and Road WorkersAbstract:
New legislation (P.A. 315) slated to go into effect April 8 will define the boundaries of Michigan’s work zones. Beginning this spring, work zones will be marked with “Work Zone Begins” and “End Road Work” signs. “Begin Work Convoy” and “End Work Convoy” signs will be used for mobile crews traveling along roads as workers paint lane lines or patch potholes. The new law also requires posting a speed limit sign in all work zones which are marked with “Work Zone Begins” and “End Road Work” signs.
