ATSSA and The Foundation: Working Together To Make Zero Deaths A Reality

Toward Zero Deaths - The Foundation offers the National Work Zone Memorial honoring lives lost in work zones to help make fatalities “real” to policy makers and drivers.

  • Purpose - Unveiled in April 2002, “The National Work Zone Memorial - Respect and Remembrance: Reflections of Life on the Road” program is a living tribute to the memory of lives lost in work zones. The Memorial travels to communities cross-country, year-round to raise public awareness of the need to respect and stay safe in America’s roadway work zones.
  • Host the Memorial - The Memorial is available to anyone interested in increasing roadway safety awareness. The Foundation encourages ATSSA members, ATSSA chapters, state DOTs, and industry leaders to host the Memorial at your next event.
