I've often wondered how traffic cones got to work, now I know -
they meet at the highway department then share a ride
to the work site. This time they've been assigned to assist in the
grading and repaving of a stretch of 25th Street,
just off High School Road.
About every twelve feet or so, each cone leaped off the truck
to take its station, creating a phalanx of orange designed to
separate the work area from the cars and trucks traveling along
the street. The cones have their own guards; at each end of the project,
a woman was stationed with a STOP sign that she used to
control and guide the flow of traffic throughout the day.
