BEND, OR -- A lot of changes are happening with the Oregon Department of Transportation. Peter Murphy at ODOT says new automatic flaggers, a new wildlife crossing, and upgrades to lights at intersections are being implemented this summer. With construction season here, Central Oregon travelers will be seeing more automated flaggers on road projects. Peter Murphy says the robo-flaggers role will improve the overall safety of workers. He also says they understand there may be some confusion because it’s new. As drivers come upon the auto-flaggers, they should stop as you would a red light and an operator will raise the arm for you to pass.
