Broad Street HAWK Signals


The project is in progress.  Construction permits were issued in early February 2024, and the second Notice to Proceed, allowing the contractor to actually begin work, was issued on February 12, 2024. The project duration is approximately 180 days from the start of work. Temporary single lane closures along Broad Street will be required sporadically throughout construction. 

About the Project

The proposed High-Intensity Activated Crosswalk (HAWK) beacon traffic signals are button-activated traffic control devices that stop road traffic and allow pedestrians to cross safely. Three locations are proposed on Broad Street near the intersections of Oak Street, Fairfax Street, and Berry Street.

This proposal is part of an ongoing City-wide effort to increase pedestrian accessibility and safety. Other project improvements include installing new pavement markings and crosswalks at each HAWK location and appropriate side streets and small sections of sidewalk improvements.
