Purpose and Need

Drivers along Hollister Avenue have a low compliance rate to stop for pedestrians at the crosswalk. The existing crosswalk does not seem to capture the driver’s attention and pedestrians must wait for gaps in traffic to cross the street safely. The Rapid Flashing Beacons system has success in grabbing drivers’ attention and increasing compliance to stop for pedestrians at the crosswalk.

Strategic Plan Goals

Strengthen Infrastructure.
Return Old Town to be the Vital Center of the City.
Maintain a Safe Community. 

Funding Sources

Funding for this project is through the Community Development block Grant (CDBG) program and Measure A local funds.
