There are flashing beacons on crosswalks at eight locations in Superior: Rock Creek Parkway and Pitkin Avenue, Rock Creek Parkway and Coal Creek Drive, Rock Creek Parkway and Honey Creek Lane, the eastern entrance to Safeway, the 88th Street roundabout, 88th Street and Shamrock Circle, Coal Creek Drive and 6th Avenue, and Sycamore Street at Founder's Park. 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):
