UDOT installs radar-equipped wildlife crossing signs

Local News

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – The Utah Department of Transportation is deploying new radar-equipped wildlife crossing signs in Eagle Mountain in an attempt to make the driving safer.

“We hope that the traveling public will notice these signs when they’re flashing and know there is a hazard in the area, and that’s all it’s designed to do, it’s to make the public travel safer,” said Leslie Beck Maintenance station supervisor for UDOT.

The signs will be installed along State Road 73 along a one-mile stretch that has seen nearly 100 deer-related collisions in the last four years, according to officials.

This is the first time UDOT has used radar-equipped signs with LEDs to reduce collisions with wildlife.
