School zones are put in place to ensure the safety of students in and around schools. School zone flasher units are installed to better regulate when the 20 mph speed zone is in effect with flashing yellow beacons. School zone flasher units are typically active on school days during the arrival and dismissal times for students. This project includes updating the majority of the school flasher devices to solar powered units, adding rear-facing amber flashing beacons to all units, replacing the outdated school clock hardware with new computers and adding new school flasher units for Schultz Elementary School. With the new installations completed in 2019, the City currently maintains 24 school zone flasher units for St Mary, Delaware Christian, DACC and some Delaware City schools.
