Starting off into a crosswalk on CAlle Verde in Valle de Oro will soon not lead to dangerous troubles between pedestrians and drivers who encroach into the crosswalk. Safety signs will not fail to keep crossers safe as long as the drivers take careful looks at the flashing lights county workers will lay in the crosswalk.
A button pedestrians will push before walking across will light up the length of flashers onteh street. The visual warning system put in on Calle Verde will be one of four of the new safety systems in Valle de Oro. The systems will also make drivers look twice on Lakeside Avenue in Lakeside and in Alpine.
The crosswalk lights work while set in a street length in the pavement.
Community planning groups in each of the three communities, in August, approved the safety warning lights system with strong votes. County supervisors got ready to make the street changes this Wednesday th 23rd when they gave the okay on the street construction projects.
The county plans to use Prop 1B funds to pay for the work at the six crosswalks. Work done by the Department of Public Works begins in late 2013 and will end by late next year.
At the crossing locations, workers will install new warning signs and yellow warning flashers.
This is a Center Line Policy Alert.
