SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake County is starting a crosswalk flag pilot program with a goal to make crossing the street safer. As part of the program, the county is seeking organizations to "adopt" the crosswalk flags by funding them.
Currently, the pilot program has put flags near schools along 2300 East and some others on 3900 South. People can pick up a bright orange flag on one side of the street to make them more visible as they cross.
The county is now accepting requests for flags at other crosswalks. Funds for the flag program are limited, so the county has created an "adopt-a-crosswalk" program for schools, businesses, groups or individuals.
Those who adopt a crosswalk will be responsible for maintaining and replacing the flags. Schools that sponsor crosswalks may have flag costs waived upon request.
