There are flashing beacons on crosswalks along 6th Avenue, 88th Street, and Rock Creek Parkway at four locations: Pitkin Avenue, Coal Creek Drive, Honey Creek Lane, and the entrance to Safeway. These crosswalks are designed to improve walkability without impeding or hindering vehicle traffic.
Things to know:
- Pedestrians can activate the flashers by pressing the push buttons installed on the median and on either side of Rock Creek Parkway.
- Once activated, crosswalks will flash when a pedestrian is in the road.
- Pedestrians are required to give drivers a chance to stop before entering the crosswalk.
- Drivers must yield the right of way to pedestrians within or approaching a crosswalk.
The flashing beacons are pictured below and can be found at the following locations (click the map to enlarge):
