Yesterday morning a life altering accident occurred near 120th and Blondo involving a worker that was contracted with the City of Omaha for “Emergency Pothole Repairs”. We send our thoughts and prayers to the injured worker and his family.
Road worker safety is of the utmost importance to Local 251. The men and women that work on our roads put their lives in danger every time they step out of their trucks. We hope the City of Omaha will conduct a thorough investigation to make sure all safety procedures were followed and if there is more that can be done by the City of Omaha to ensure the safety of all road workers in the future. We ask everyone to say a prayer for this worker and his family. We are hopeful for a speedy and full recovery.
