Crosswalks on Highway 9 to be installed.

High Intensity Activated Crosswalk Signal (HAWK)
(Also known as a Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon)
WHAT IS IT?
A HAWK acts like a traffic signal and is designed to catch drivers’ attention at pedestrian crosswalks and improve safety.
Because a HAWK operates similarly to a regular traffic signal, both drivers and pedestrians already have the skill set to respond easily and quickly, but they do not require traffic to stop unless a pedestrian needs to cross.

FOR MORE INFORMATION:

There are several informative videos on the internet that show how HAWKs work. One example can be found at:        https://vimeo.com/223672024
