Without these innovative solutions, the impact on the condition and performance of our roads and bridges would be even greater.” State transportation departments in Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, and New Hampshire offer some examples.

New Technologies Solar Light Bars (cont) This program was recently mentioned in AASHTO News The Arizona Department of Transportation is testing a new solar-powered system to eliminate the need to keep its vehicles idling while parked near traffic. This new technology allows emergency lighting mounted on work trucks to remain illuminated even when the engine is turned off. “Exploring innovations like solar-powered safety lighting on construction vehicles taps one of Arizona’s best natural resources – abundant sunshine – and allows the department to reduce fuel and maintenance costs for these trucks,” said John Halikowski, ADOT director of the Arizona Department of Transportation. “This is an effort with environmental, cost-savings, and stewardship benefits. It demonstrates our efforts to find new solutions for age-old challenges.” Currently, ADOT construction staff is field testing 37 trucks equipped with the new solar technology. ADOT is also participating in a program to cut the department’s annual travel by 15 percent by encouraging employees to use technologies such as videoconferencing and by implementing alternative work schedules to cut the total number of days employees spend traveling to and from construction sites throughout the state.

17 Current Challenges and Impacts
MORE…… Current Challenges and Impacts ADOT Street-sign Warns of Rogue Panda FLAGSTAFF - Authorities in Flagstaff are assuring residents there are no rogue pandas roaming the city after some pranksters got creative with an electronic street sign. The Arizona Department of Transportation-controlled sign was set up to warn drivers not to make left turns at a busy intersection. But motorists heading to work Monday morning got an entirely different message: "Rogue panda on rampage." A passer-by reported the hacked sign to police at about 3 a.m. Monday. Transportation Department spokeswoman Mackenzie Nuno says the sign was restored to its original message by 11 a.m. She says the agency has no suspects, but she noted the hackers would have needed specialized equipment to change the sign's message. Flagstaff police Lt. Ken Koch tells the Arizona Daily Sun that citizens can rest assured there are no problems with rogue pandas in the city.
