Change to Signalized Mid-block Crosswalks

 

Public Works/General Services will be replacing red traffic bulbs at all signalized mid-block crosswalks throughout Salina with a new style of red light. Existing lights are either solid red bulbs or red bulbs with white flashing strobes. The new red lights at these locations will have a white flashing ring around the bulb designed to help increase visibility and improve public safety for pedestrians and motorists. Installation will begin Monday, December 19th in the downtown area and continue to other locations over the next several weeks.

The crosswalks will remain functional during the installation; however, motorists are encouraged to use caution when traveling in or near the active work area.
