KYTC Asking Public to “Glow Orange” for National Work Zone Awareness Week


The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is reaching out to the public to help raise awareness for road crew members and to help make state roadways safer.

KYTC says last year’s National Work Zone Awareness Week took place in April, but the organization decided to postpone the event until the week of September 13th – 19th this year due to the prominence of COVID-19 related media.

The Transportation Cabinet reminds people that as the number of orange barrels and crew members on the road increase, so does the likelihood of a work zone crash.

KYTC is now asking for the public to take, or modify a photo with something orange and post it on their social media accounts using the hashtag #glowky.

You can tag the KYTC Facebook page at or mention them on Twitter using their handle @KYTC.

Photos of workers, in the field, families of crew members, and pets of crew members are welcome. A Facebook profile photo frame has also been created by the KYTC to help raise awareness.

The social media hashtags for the week are: #KyWZAW, #GlowKy and #VestedInWZSafety
