"Safety Man" made his first appearance on a Lambert roadway this week to alert drivers to avoid a construction project.

Spring is springing up and so is "Safety Man." The orange pylon figure, equipped with safety vest, goggles, vest and a hardhat is a creation of the Airport’s Field Maintance crew. His mission is to bring awareness to potentially dangerous areas. This week "Safety Man" was guarding a section on Lambert International Boulevard where crews were repairing a bridge expansion joint. With the warming of temperatures, Lambert crews are trying to get a jump on potholes and other road repairs. Lambert maintains 25 lane miles of roadways on the public side of the Airport’s terminals and dozens more within perimeter of the airfield.
