Pilot Car Safety
This construction project will be using a signed car to
lead traffic through the construction work area at a safe
speed. This car is called a pilot car. A PILOT CAR
FOLLOW ME sign will be displayed on the rear of this
There will be only one lane of traffic open during this
construction project. A flagger will release traffic to
follow the pilot car to the other end of construction where
a second flagger will be holding traffic from the opposing
lane. Traffic will only be released to a pilot car going
in the same direction.
If you are entering the roadway where crews are working
by a driveway or intersection, you must wait for the pilot
car and vehicles following to pass you. Then you must travel
in the same direction as the pilot car.
Do not travel in the opposite direction of the pilot
car and the vehicles following it.
