INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Oct. 23, 2015)– Construction on I-65 from Southport Road to Main Street in Greenwood is now complete.

But with the celebration comes pause and a focus on work zone safety.

INDOT along with the Road Construction Awareness Corporation unveiled new safety signs that will be placed all over central Indiana. The signs read “Slow down, save a life” and “We’re all in this together.”

The family of Coty DeMoss were on hand to announce the Save A Life campaign.

The 24-year-old and a co-worker were killed while working on I-69. A driver failed to change lanes and ran into them.

The DeMoss family hopes these signs and continued awareness will save a family from enduring the pain they’ve had to face.

“Everybody that’s out there has family,” said Coty’s father Dennish DeMoss. “Everybody wants to go home at night.”
