New Safety Features on Crosswalk

The city of Ukiah is installing new safety fea­tures on a cross­walk on South State Street. The fea­tures are designed to help pedes­tri­ans get across the busy street. The Pub­lic Works Depart­ment will install advanced yield lines and signs that con­sist of a row of tri­an­gles that des­ig­nate where vehi­cles are sup­posed to stop when there is a per­son using the cross­walk. The tri­an­gles are designed to pro­vide bet­ter vis­i­bil­ity between motorists and pedes­tri­ans, and are being installed as a test case.
