Diversity, equity and inclusion
We are deeply committed to actively combatting racism and strengthening our anti-racist, diversity, equity and inclusion efforts to guarantee that our transportation system serves all Washingtonians.
We have recently launched a new Executive Order regarding this matter and are creating a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Work Plan. For more information, see the documents below.

Slow down – lives are on the line.
In 2022, speeding continued to be a top reason for work zone crashes.
Even one life lost is too many.
Each year about 670 people are killed nationally in highway work zones. In 2022, Washington had six fatal work zone crashes on state roads.
It's in EVERYONE’S best interest.
95% of people hurt in work zones are drivers, their passengers or passing pedestrians, not just our road crews.
