Seventeen area elementary schools will be getting new signs and flashing lights at crosswalks beginning this week.

The City of El Paso will begin to install the signs and  lights at Guerrero Elementary and will proceed to the other schools over the next several months. The work is being coordinated with area school districts and is expected to be complete by fall of 2014.

City officials say this work is in addition to a project which began in late 2013 which brought similar upgrades eleven elementary schools.
