Remember the Zipper Merge? These caterpillars do

KDOT implemented the zipper merge (or late merge) last year.

When a lane was closed in a construction zone, the "zipper merge" occurred when drivers  used both lanes up until they reached the defined merge area. They then took turns in a "zipper" fashion into the open lane.

If you didn't have a chance to experience this project, here are some caterpillars who can help demonstrate how the process worked.

We don't know where these little guys were headed, but they probably got there safely and efficiently using the zipper merge technique!
