The Missouri Department of Transportion (MoDOT) announced that a Missouri Department of Transportation Kansas City District Motorist Assist Operator was killed in the line of duty early this morning (September 21).  50-year-old Clifton J. Scott was providing traffic control assistance at an Interstate 70/470 crash site when he was struck by a motorist.

Scott began his career with MoDOT on June 1, 1997 as a maintenance crew worker.  He was promoted to an intermediate, then senior crew worker before joining Motorist Assist August 1, 2002.

His survivors include a fiancé, brother, sister, and a 14-year-old son.

With the weekend here, MoDOT reminds you to be careful on the roads.  When you come to a construction zone, slow down and pay attention to the speed zones.  Another good rule of thumb is to leave enough space between you and the car in front of you.  Expect delays and if you know a work zone is coming up, leave for work or your destination a little earlier.

Visit MoDOT’s website to see what construction zones are planned and coming up.
