Remembering workers killed in work zones

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Tonight VDOT remembered transportation workers who were killed on the job. They held a vigil at VDOT's headquarters on Broad Street.

Every year -- 720 workers and drivers are killed in highway work zone crashes.

Tonight's vigil was in honor of National Work Zone Awareness Week that's coming up April 19.

The agency hopes drivers will consider work zones, no phone zones.
