On Thursday, June 13, the City completed the installation of the Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFB), a pedestrian crossing improvement project.
The City contracted with Civic Construction Associates to have the Flashing Beacons installed along Ojai Avenue and Maricopa Highway. The locations along Ojai Avenue include Canada Street, Blanche Street and Park Road. The locations along Maricopa Highway include Vallerio Avenue, Carrillo Road, Pirie Road, and Church Road.
The rapid flashing beacon pedestrian crosswalk system is a unique crosswalk solution to improve driver yield rates at uncontrolled pedestrian crossings and is ideal for multi-lane crosswalks.
