Today marks the first day of National Work Zone Awareness Week. This campaign is held annually in the spring at the start of the construction season to help raise public awareness of work zone hazards. D.E. Gemmill encourages you to understand that Work Zone Safety is EVERYBODY’S responsibility.

Work Zones play a key role in maintaining and upgrading our nations roadways. Unfortunately, daily changes in traffic patterns, narrowed rights of way, and other construction activities often create a combination of factors resulting in crashes, injuries and fatalities. These crashes also cause excessive delays, especially given the constrained driving environment. 

Work zone incidents impact everyone. In addition to vehicular crashes and fatalities, the leading cause of death in road and bridge sectors are run overs, back overs and falls. Drivers, passengers, and construction workers are all at risk. Your driving habits can directly help or harm the well-being of other motorists, cyclists, workers and pedestrians, including you. Its important for everyone to do their part to improve work zone safety.

Drivers, bikers, motorcyclists and pedestrians should always be alert, obey traffic laws and signs, and pay attention to their surroundings. 

Passengers should always buckle up, act responsibly and avoid distracting the driver. 

Emergency responders must be able to respond to and secure crash locations.

Police and courts are responsible for enforcing traffic and work zones laws

Field workers must always implement safety best practices when actively working in construction zones

Local and state governments should promote safe roads and increase public awareness about work zone safety 





Craig Adams, Inc. has used D.E. Gemmill exclusively for our Line Painting and Signage needs since the 90’s.  We have always been very pleased with the quality of work performed, jobs completed in a timely fashion, and at competitive prices, on all size projects.  A great company to do business with!

It has always been a positive experience working with D.E. Gemmill. It all starts in the estimating department where I can always count on receiving a proposal that is accurate and thorough. Then we have the tough task of scheduling on tight time frame jobs where Cary and Dave always seem to work us in when we need it. The field guys always do their best to bring to our attention possible conflicts that could present problems if they notice something that isn’t quite right.

I would recommend D.E. Gemmill’s services for anyone looking to have professional and quality workmanship on their projects.

We wanted to send you a thank you for the great job. The men working were very good and completed their job very professionally. I really like when you have a great team to work with. Again thank you and your crew, we would recommend your company to anyone.

I would like to let you know that the line painting crew (Donnie, Albert, Scott, Tom, and Possum) did a fantastic job this week. It was a pleasure to work with them and the respect they showed me while I was riding along. Please pass my appreciation along to them.

Also if you can get Donnie into singing lessons that would be great.  My ears still feel the pain.
