Traffic Safety

We work around the clock to ensure our customers have power they can rely on. Whether we’re completing scheduled maintenance or working through an unplanned power outage, our crews are working in the communities we serve.

We want to keep them safe, and we want to ensure you and your family stay safe through work zones and construction sites.

Please keep these tips in mind while travelling through work zones and construction sites. Help keep your community safe.

  • Short-term projects may require crews to temporarily control traffic, create detours, or close roads. If you see Enova crews on your road, follow the signs and slow down.
  • Watch for trucks turning and backing up.
  • Slow down and watch for crew members when driving through work and construction zones.
  • Be aware of your surroundings and avoid distractions like smartphones and GPS devices.
  • Walk only on sidewalks or designated walkways.
  • Ask for help if you require assistance walking through a work or construction area.
  • Construction signs are there for your safety and the safety of our crews and contractors. When you see a road closed sign or a detour sign, please follow it.  It keeps everyone safe.
  • Always stay alert for unexpected hazards.
  • Operations crews often use traffic control persons to stop, slow, and safely direct traffic through work sites. Always obey the flaggers, pay attention, and drive carefully.  

If you have questions about any of our work practices or want to learn more about what our crews are doing, let us know. Contact us at [email] or by phone at 226-896-2200 and we can assist you.
