When you’re sitting in your car waiting for a train to safely pass by before continuing on your commute, you might not think much about how the signals work to safely pass a train, but there’s a lot of coordination that occurs behind the scenes.
The Traffic Signal Division of IBEW Local 111 in Denver, Colorado is hard at work testing traffic signals for an intersecting Union Pacific Railroad track. Traffic Signal Technicians are working with the city and BNSF Railway to test new railroad signals that have been installed as part of the Central 70 Project, a reconstruction of a 10-mile stretch of road on I-70, one of the major highways in the mile-high city.
