The "Speed Week" campaign begins today and runs through Wednesday, June 17th.
Troopers are also going to make sure people aren't traveling too fast through highway construction work zones.

You are going to see more and more workers around the clock not only on the major roads but the secondary routes. One of them is McKinley Parkway in Hamburg. The milling and paving project will officially begin on Monday June 15th.
