New Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon Signal

In March 2017, students, parents, teachers, residents, and motorists on Rochester Avenue adjacent to Rancho Cucamonga High School were first to see the new pedestrian hybrid beacon known as the High-Intensity Activated Crosswalk, or the HAWK.

The HAWK is a traffic control device that helps pedestrians and bicyclists cross mid-block across high traffic roadways. The new crosswalk signal is designed to increase visibility and improve safety for students and visitors at Rancho Cucamonga High School that need to cross Rochester Avenue. This signal will be beneficial during school let-in and let-out and during events at the school stadium. For more information on this new crosswalk signal, visit the Engineering Services page on the City website at www.CityofRC.us.
