Broad Street HAWK Signals


In-Progress (Summer 2021)

The project is in the Right-of-Way (ROW) and easement acquisition phase. 

About the Project

The proposed High-Intensity Activated Crosswalk (HAWK) beacon traffic signals are button-activated traffic control devices that stop road traffic and allow pedestrians to cross safely. Three locations are proposed on Broad Street near the intersections of Oak Street, Fairfax Street, and Berry Street.

This proposal is part of an ongoing city-wide effort to increase pedestrian accessibility and safety. Other project improvements include installing new pavement markings and crosswalks at each HAWK location and appropriate side streets and small sections of sidewalk improvements.
