"If you get involved in an accident in one, a five-minute commute will turn into a two-hour commute. If you'll just be patient, maybe leave just a little bit early, you're going to get through these construction zones as quick as possible," Trooper Dwight Durant said.

Troopers want everyone to remember fines for traffic violations go up in construction zones while workers are present.
