Prune Hill School
Flashing Warning Replacement
Replace existing School Zone signal controllers for the 4 advance flashing warnings near Prune Hill Elementary School.
The City owns and maintains four (4) School Zone advance warning flashing lights near Prune Hill Elementary School. The system is outdated and requires manual setting at each location and does not possess the technology to remotely monitor or adjust. These are the only school flashers the City owns.
The school zone flashers have reached the end of their useful life and require new controllers to be installed. Currently only 3 signals are operating with the fourth having totally failed.
Replacing these controllers will allow the timing to be set remotely and also provide monitoring capabilities saving staff time and resources. Additionally, the Camas School District has expressed interest in partnering if these are upgraded to a format in which they could monitor, adjust and maintain, potentially relieving the City of these duties.
