SIOUX FALLS, S.D (KELO AM) The road construction season is in full swing and authorities are reminding drivers to slow down in work zones.
Officer Sam Clemens says if you’re in hurry take another route because construction zones naturally slow traffic. He says speeding won't get to your destination any faster and it makes the area more hazardous for workers. Most of the time there will be enough congestion to force you to slow down
Clemens says stay alert, be prepared to slow or stop and allow others to merge in highway or roadwork zones.
