Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFB) Project

Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) will be installed at the crosswalks at the main entrances of William F. Maule at Windlestrae Park (Kenas Road) and Spring Valley Park (Upper State Road).  RRFBs enhance pedestrian safety at crosswalks by providing a high-intensity flashing light that alerts drivers to the presence of pedestrians. These beacons have been shown to improve driver-yielding rates and reduce pedestrian crashes, making them an effective tool for improving pedestrian safety.
