Folding bridge sign mechanisms have been installed on a number of bridges across the County. Their purpose is to allow for the passage of wide agricultural equipment such as combines and swathers without damaging the bridge marker signs.
Bridges outfitted with the mechanisms can easily be identified by red folding latches on the sign posts. To fold them down, simply pull the latch up and swing the sign down towards the outside of the bridge.
Once the equipment has gone through, the signs must be returned to the up position in order to protect the safety of the travelling public. Any concerns, questions, or ideas for improvement can be directed to the Infrastructure Services department.
