HAWK Pedestrian Signal

A new pedestrian signal called a HAWK signal has been installed at the Hoover Elementary School pedestrian crossing on North Broadway. A HAWK (High-Intensity Activated Crosswalk) signal is a signal-beacon designed to help pedestrians safely cross busy streets.  While different in appearance for motorists, for the pedestrians, this signal works like other push-button activated traffic signals by stopping traffic with a red signal, allowing pedestrians to cross with a WALK signal.
