Steady flashing light on Newberry Hill Road

The in basket: Ted Moore read the recent Road Warrior about the odd time a reader had seen the flashing lights blink in the school zones on and around Central Valley Road and observed that “the school crossing signs for Klahowya Secondary School… were installed nearly two years ago, and the lights have flashed 24×7 ever since. Holidays, summers, weekends… the crossing lights flash, midnight, 4 a.m., 8 p.m. … it doesn’t matter… 24 hours a day… every day!”

The out basket: Unlike the flashing lights at other school zones, those on Newberry Hill near Klahowya Secondary School aren’t intended to impose a school zone speed limit, says Doug Bear of Kitsap County Public Works, but rather to call attention to the fact that people often are crossing Newberry Hill Road on foot there. The relatively high speed on Newberry prompted the extra warning, he said.
