August 15, 2018 – New Frio Street Crosswalk

The new crosswalk from the Frio Street Building to the Monterey Building is operational. The new crosswalk, part of the city’s ongoing improvements to Frio Street, contains a Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon, also known as High-Intensity Activated crossWalK (HAWK).  The HAWK is an overhead flashing signal that is activated by a pedestrian and utilizes yellow and red lights to warn drivers when a pedestrian is crossing the roadway.  The phasing operates in the following method:

 No light
Drivers can proceed through intersection without stopping until the beacon is activated by a pedestrian pushing a button.

 Flashing Yellow Light
Warns drivers approaching the crosswalk of a pedestrian crossing.

 Solid Yellow Light
Warns drivers to prepare to stop.

 Solid Red Light
Drivers are to stop for pedestrians crossing.

 Flashing Red Light
Drivers are to stop and may proceed through the intersection when it is clear of pedestrians.

 No light
Drivers can proceed through intersection without stopping until the beacon is activated by a pedestrian.

For personal safety, pedestrians crossing Frio Street should only cross the street at crosswalks.  Additional Frio Street crosswalks are located at the corners of W. Cesar E. Chavez Blvd. and Buena Vista Street.
