New Zig Zag markings on rural highway

WSDOT is testing out some new highway markings on rural roads in Snohomish county. "When the scenery all looks the same, you might miss an important sign or road you meant to turn on."

To help snap drivers back to attention in some of those areas, they are testing out new zigzag pavement markings near the Centennial Trail pedestrian / bike crossing on SR 9 in Arlington and near two crosswalks on SR 20 in Concrete.

These markings are already used extensively in Europe as well as in Virginia and Hawaii to give drivers an extra heads up that they are approaching a crossing and should slow down.
