The City has installed a new type of traffic signal - a HAWK (High-intensity Activated Cross Walk) at 260 Union.
The HAWK makes it easier for pedestrians to cross Union Blvd. to access both businesses and the Federal Center light rail station. It also minimizes traffic delays.
Watch a video explaining HAWK
might seem confusing, but just remember these easy rules:
: Slow down and get ready to stop.
: Stop if possible.
: Stop and yield to pedestrian. Then go.
