Highway construction crews take time to exercise before starting shift

As the sun rises on a chilly Monday morning, 70 construction workers wearing yellow safety vests and hard hats simultaneously bend and touch their toes.

They swing their arms; they kick one leg out and stretch their hamstrings. And when they’ve finished their roughly 10-minute exercise session, which unfolds on the median of Texas 71, they pile into trucks and disperse, now primed to swing hammers, climb ladders, operate heavy machinery and haul rock as part of a project to add tollways to a 2.5-mile stretch of roadway.
