Oklahoma's Department of Transportation is honoring highway workers who were killed on the job.

A memorial wall is on display at Woodland Hills Mall to remember the workers killed by distracted driving crashes and fatalities in work zones across the country.

White hard hats on traffic cones are set up to honor the 60 ODOT workers who have died while on the job.

A yellow hard hat is on display to remember Jarrell Gray who died just this week while working on Highway 20 west of Jay.

"What it comes down to is the drivers, the public drivers that are in our work zones,” ODOT’s Matt Buck said. "We need you to pay attention."

The memorial will be on display at Woodland Hills Mall through the weekend.
