How to Avoid Construction Zones When Driving

Running into unexpected road construction when you are driving can be extremely frustrating, especially if you are in a hurry. You have the option of using your GPS to help you avoid these construction areas or you can use the tips below to help you navigate around construction zones.

  • Find out if there's a special radio frequency that you can listen to that will tell you the latest traffic and construction alerts. You can also check the Department of Transportation for websites that will alert you to construction areas.
  • Take the back roads if you are in a hurry. If you do run into some road work it probably won't be as major as if it were on the highway.
  • If you still can't avoid running into a construction zone be sure to watch your speed. The speed limit reduces in construction and can come with a hefty fine if you are ticketed for speeding.
