Construction company growing weary of distracted drivers

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA 21) -

A local construction company has a message for drivers: Pay attention and stay out of work zones.

On Thursday, Brooks Construction took to social media to plead with those behind the wheel -- and to show what carelessness has done to recent road work.

A photo showed a long track through wet concrete, where one vehicle veered into the work area.

"Wow, this is ridiculous! I can't believe that someone would do that!" posted one commenter.

"Sorry you have to put up with that and will pray for your safety," noted another.

The complete post by Brooks Construction follows.

Drivers of NE Indiana, we ask for your help. We've been out working on I-469 since spring, fixing the rough concrete sections and paving new surface on the asphalt sections. We've got cones, barrels, signs, etc. in place to help you navigate our construction zones, but it seems like more and more impatient drivers are cutting through our work space. This is dangerous to them, to us, and to their fellow drivers.

Please keep your head up and your tempers down in a work zone. We are working as quickly as possible to get lanes open, but when you cut through fresh concrete, it means the lane will be closed longer while we repair the section. We appreciate your help in keeping our coworkers, other drivers, and yourselves safe!
