The free event, which helps kick off Work Zone Awareness Week from April 9-13, gives people of all ages th chance to see MoDOT equipment up close and speak with department employees from 4 to 7 p.m. at the District Office, 600 N.E. Colbern Road in Lee’s Summit.
Big Truck Night also will feature games, demonstrations and the chance to meet Buckle Bear and Barrel Bob with the goal of increasing work-zone safety and awareness.
“Our ultimate goal every day is to get everyone to their destination safely — whether that be those traveling in our area or our workers on the roadways,” MoDOT KC District Engineer Brian Kidwell said. “Events like Big Truck Night are a great way to show everyone what we do and raise awareness so hopefully we can keep all of us a little safer out there.”
Since 2000, there have been 19 MoDOT employees killed in work-zone crashes and another 59 people were killed with 3,809 injured in work-zone crashes between 2012 and 2017.
Pursuit lands suspect in custody
Archie resident Michael Moorhead, 38, was taken into custody March 30 after a brief vehicle pursuit involving the Cass County Sheriff’s Office and Missouri State Highway Patrol.
The chase began at approximately 8 a.m. as officers attempted to stop a vehicle, which had been reported stolen in Belton, in the Dayton area, which is located east of Archie.
After a short pursuit, the suspect drove off the roadway and became stuck in a ditch. He was taken in custody on a warrant out of Bates County for felony possession of a controlled substance.
