Ferry system goes crazy with the orangeApril 1st, 2011 by ed friedrich
The ferries people have really done it this time. In recognition of National Work Zone Awareness Week, they’ve painted all of the boats orange for a week — April 4-9.
Media and others across the state are encouraged to show their orange to honor roadway workers and bring national attention to motorist and worker safety. You can make submissions on the Go Orange for Work Zone Safety website.
“Going orange is an opportunity for all of us to show support for those working Washington’s roadsides, whether they’re with WSDOT, cities, counties, utilities or contractors,” said Paula Hammond, Washington transportation secretary. “By raising awareness about work zone safety, we help ensure that all workers get home safely to their families each night.”
UPDATE: April Fools
