Queue detection and warning system installation one of approved projects in July lettings

Railroad crossing on K-196 in Harvey County.
The installation of a queue detection and warning system at a railroad crossing on K-196 in Harvey County is one of the approved projects in KDOT’s July letting. The system warns eastbound approaching traffic to be prepared to stop if there is any vehicle stopped at the crossing.  Trucks require more breaking time than a standard vehicle, this system will be helpful for the approaching truck traffic by providing that advance warning.  The flashing beacons tied to the detection will warn all vehicles that they need to be prepared to stop.
Phillips Southern Electric Company Inc., of Wichita is the contractor on the $62,560 project.
