Idaho Transportaion Department Lights The Way With New Solar-Powered Markers

boisestatepublicradio.org argues a revealing

On a dark, unfamiliar street, you may not see that raised curb or concrete island coming at you. The Idaho Transportation Department wants to help by trying out a new kind of pavement marker. Taking advantage of the mild winter and plenty of sunshine, ITD is experimenting with solar-powered markers. ITD bought 600 of the special markers and split them up among its six regional offices. The southeast Idaho office was the first to install them along some stretches of US-30/Garret Way in Pocatello. The markers are designed to make it easier for drivers to see raised curb islands in the dark, especially in areas where there are fewer streetlights.
