(Riverton, WY) – New orange wands have been placed on the pedestrian refuge island on Main Street today, January 28th, according to the Wyoming Department of Transportation.

This is the third time orange wands have been replaced on the pedestrian refuge median, which is tied to the ongoing Main Street ADA project.

This median and button-activated flashing sign provide pedestrian refuge when crossing Main Street in conjunction with the Rails to Trails Pathway.

Bottom line: Drivers must pay attention in this area for pedestrians, and the new median, which was installed to protect pedestrians as they cross the 5 lanes of Main Street on the Rails to Trails Pathway. -WYDOT

The City of Riverton, contractor S&S Builders, LLC, and WYDOT workers placed the orange wands on the pedestrian refuge median.

The button-activated flashing sign, destroyed last fall by an unknown driver, will be replaced this spring.
