Barrel monsters warn drivers to slow down in construction zones

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

Slow down on Interstate 35 in North Texas… or else you could face the wrath of a "barrel monster."

The 15-foot orange creatures were created by teams from AGL Constructors, the company that is working on the 35Express Project between Highway 380 in Deonton and Interstate 635 in Dallas.

They are meant to raise awareness about workplace and driver safety in honor of "Work Zone Safety Week."

The monsters will be on display along the corridor through Saturday.

Drivers are encouraged to slow down around them and also vote for their favorite at Facebook.com/I35Express.
