[ARCHIVED] New Flashing Crosswalk Beacon at Hoen and Sierra Creek

NF_Crosswalk Beacon

Today, City crews began work to demolish the concrete pedestrian curb ramps at the crosswalk on Hoen Avenue and Sierra Creek Lane in southeast Santa Rosa. The existing pedestrian curb ramps are being replaced with upgraded ADA pedestrian curb ramps and new Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFB) to aid pedestrians in crossing Hoen Avenue at the marked crossing. The entire project is expected to take two to three weeks to complete.

The City intends to install 7 additional RRFBs with the available grant funding. Once the RRFB crosswalk installation is complete at Hoen and Sierra Creek, City crews will begin work at the crosswalk on Sebastopol Road and Cesar Chavez Language Academy.

The RRFB is a traffic control device designed to increase driver awareness of pedestrians crossing roadways at midblock crossings or uncontrolled intersections. The beacons consist of rectangular shaped amber light emitting diodes (LEDs) installed below pedestrian warning signs. The beacon remains ‘dark’ until a pedestrian desiring to cross the street pushes the call button to activate the flashing lights. The lights flash in an irregular flash pattern that is similar to emergency flashers on police vehicles. The flashing lights are intended to attract the driver’s attention and reinforce the driver’s duty to yield to pedestrians in the marked crosswalk.
