S.C. Department of Transportation workers are installing new school speed zone signs and lighting for the zone around Fairfield Central High School. Workers said the overhead signs and lights should be more visible to motorists than the current road signs. Students walking across Highway 321 from the Fairfield Central High School and Fairfield Middle School campuses now have added safety features. Freshly-painted pedestrian crosswalks and walk signals have been installed this summer. Bill Neely, Leon Jordan and Toby Johnson did painting work aimed at keeping students, faculty and staff save on the highly trafficked intersection.
Larger signage will help motorists observe the school zone speed limit.
These road signs are being replaced as part of the South Carolina Department of Transportation plan to improve highway safety.
