Work is set to begin on a series of lighted crosswalks intended to improve student safety near some schools in the Conejo Valley.
Six enhanced crosswalk systems will be installed during the next year. The systems include in-pavement lights, and flashing beacons to alert drivers when students are crossing.
The first of the six systems is going in at Gainsborough Road, and Dover Avenue, with work starting next week.
The City of Thousand Oaks received $700,000 in state, and federal grants to pay for the bulk of the safety improvement work.
