The City Traffic, Signs, and Signals Department recently replaced the school zone flasher on Whitefish Stage Road. They were able to make the school zone sign themselves and installed the flashing ring on the top of the sign. The poles, bases, and cabinets were re-purposed for the project to keep costs down. The lighting ring around the sign flashes 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The speed is displayed below the sign and when drivers exceed 35 miles per hour during those hours, the current speed flashes with the message to slow down. After 5 p.m. when the ring turns off. the feedback sign still runs, but the excessive speed is set to 45 miles per hour.
Please keep in mind the 35 mile per hour speed zone from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and keep a close eye out for children crossing the street at all times. The safety of our children is in all of our hands.
