Work starts soon on some modifications to three existing mid-block crossings on US 2 in Airway Heights.
Work includes installing new pedestrian crossing lighting and controls, overhead flashing beacon lights, and reconfiguring existing pedestrian refuge islands.
Some added items include the installation of two solar powered, radar speed indicator signs and improved pavement striping at the crosswalks. Pedestrians will be able to activate the eastbound and westbound overhead flashing beacons separately to warn drivers they plan to cross each leg of US 2.
Federal Enhancement funds will pay for the $230,000 worth of improvements scheduled to begin in late April and finish up in early May.
