State-of-the-art school crossing lights in Marshfield

Solar powered crossing sign

MARSHFIELD, WI (WSAU) - Some Marshfield elementary schools are getting new state-of-the art, solar-powered pedestrian crossing signs thanks to the “Safe Routes to School” grant program. City Engineer Tom Turchi says the lights are called “Random Rapid Flashing Beacons,” and will be a big improvement to student safety at both Madison and Washington Elementary Schools. The two sets of new lights cost about $17,000, but Turchi says they’re 100% reimbursable through the “Safe Routes to School” program.
