"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.
Avoid parking fees the next time you pick up a passenger. Lambert provides free waiting zones for motorists near each terminal.
