HAWK Traffic Signal

The High-Intensity Activated crosswalk (HAWK) signal provides a protected pedestrian crossing as a way to increase safety.

It is only for pedestrian crossing and does not control traffic on side streets. The HAWK signal is activated through pushing a button, this causes flashing yelling lights that warn drivers that a pedestrian wishes to cross.

The signal then changes to a solid red to stop drivers. The solid red will then become a flashing red indicating to drivers they can pass through the intersection when it is safe to do so.
