Connell school zone to get upgrade

Radar signs, repainted crosswalks planned

CONNELL — The city has received a state Transportation Improvement Board grant to upgrade signage for school zones.

The grant will allow the city to replace temporary signs with flashing signs, officials said. The flashing signs are programable and include radar to tell drivers how fast they are going in the school zone.

As the signs are upgraded, the city will also repaint the crosswalks in front of the school zone.

City officials hope to have the updates in place late this summer, just prior to the start of the 2024-25 school year.
