"There's a lot of roadwork out here because the infrastructure needs word that means there are a lot of work zones," says Kevin Gutknecht with the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Which is why they are launching a new campaign, "Orange Cones, No Phones."
"The campaign that was started is intended to alert motorists to the fact that they need to be very careful and work zones, you don't want to have a crash in a work zone because you'll yourself and you may hurt workers," says Gutknecht
And these areas can be pretty unpredictable.
"You're encountering a situation that's very much different and can be very much different than what you're used to, that means you need to be paying more attention when you're there," says Gutknecht
I don't think that there's anything that you're doing on a cell phone the phone call or a text message or anything that's worth someone's life or some sort of injury that could change a person's life," says Gutknecht
