State Rep. Dennis Bonnen recently filed a bill to create safer construction zones for workers.
House Bill 1238 seeks to lower speed limits and requires concrete barriers in construction zones. It was filed after working with Sarah and Joe Roth, whose loved one was killed in a construction zone accident on S.H. 288.
“I am grateful to the Roth family of Clute for bringing this important issue to my attention after enduring such a painful loss,” Bonnen stated. “It is my hope that this legislation can turn a tragedy into something positive by preventing further accidents and saving lives.”
