Another job lost

Not exactly sure how these work, but there was no Flagman. I'm sure these have been around for awhile, but it's the first time I've seen them.

These were in the Rocky Mountain National Park

They have been around for a long time. They are used when the road has only one lane for both directions and will be closed for more then just a couple of hours. Most times when the road will be shut down for weeks or months.

How about the people that handed out tickets on the penn pike and I was in an automated parking garage in Philly last week that had a machine that took your money.

They are ok till they malfunction on a one lane mountain road curve and no one is around to fix them=head on collision. After the accident occurs then they'll make changes.

They were commonplace when we lived in Ohio, especially where bridge repairs were being made and only one lane would remain open to traffic.

Are you aware of this circumstance occurring?
Wretched excess is just barely enough.

I don't think flagmen were EVER present unless the construction crew was actually working. For long-term lane closures I would much prefer one of these rather than unlit signs in the middle of the night.
