The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) annually commemorates workers who lost their lives in work zones. The memorial event honors the 61 WSDOT employees who have died while working in such areas since 1950. The recent increase in accidents involving drunk drivers hitting WSDOT teams underscores the dangers faced by road crews. The memorial consists of 61 empty white helmets placed in front of traffic cones with white roses, serving as a poignant reminder of the risks workers encounter on Washington's roadways. Drivers are urged to exercise caution and give these workers "a brake" when approaching work zones.
