This research described the safety measures and safety warning signages of road construction projects in the first and second legislative districts in the province of Nueva Ecija. Forty road motorists and ten engineers who were familiar with roads and road constructions safety procedures were asked to assess the safety qualities of the projects. The data gathered by the researchers were tallied and tabulated using frequency, percentage and weighted mean. It was found that the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) used during construction was properly implemented. There were sufficient warning signs and barriers on the road projects. Oftentimes, there was good traffic management to control the flow of traffic passing through the construction site. However, the traffic signs were sometimes visible and warning signs were often unreadable for drivers especially at night.
