South City installs new pedestrian crossing at El Camino High School
August 29, 2014, 05:00 AM

South San Francisco completed an new pedestrian crossing at El Camino High School on Aug. 8 to enhance safety for students as they began the new school year.

Working with a consultant, the city installed Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons, or RRFBs, in the crosswalk at Mission Road between Lawndale and Evergreen avenues. RRFBs are amber-colored flashing lights designed to alert motorists that a pedestrian is crossing the street. The RRFBs work in conjunction with video cameras that detect pedestrians and begin flashing to warn motorists that pedestrians are crossing. Pedestrians can also activate push-button devices mounted on street light poles to trigger the flashing lights. The RRFBs are powered by solar panels engineered to work under even extreme weather conditions.

For more information contact the Public Works Department at 877-8550.
