FARGO—With $370-million dollars worth of road construction projects going on around North Dakota there's a warning to slow down from the Department of Transportation.

Thursday morning NDDOT, City of West Fargo, Highway Patrol and the Associated General Contracts of North Dakota came together to remind everyone the rules of the road in work zones.

That includes minimizing distractions, being patient and staying alert.

Last year there were no construction deaths on North Dakota highways and the goal is to keep that number at zero.

"Look for a safe and efficient construction season this year. Remember, when you're going through a work zone, today's minor inconvenience is just an effort for your improved future ride," said Russ Hansen, Associated General Contracts of ND.

There are four DOT projects happening this summer in the metro.
