Automated Flaggers to be Tested This Upcoming SummerAuthor/Presenter: Fowler, Victoria
Mark Storey, Whitman County public works director, brought before the commissioners the idea of purchasing an automated flagger for this summer’s road construction season. Automated flaggers will enhance the safety of flaggers and save money for the county. However, automated flaggers may work well in some situations but not others. The plan is to test drive one of these operations in 2020 and see how it plays out for years to come.
