On Thursday, April 6, 2023, the City of Santa Ana Public Works Traffic Engineering Division activated the Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) signal crosswalk safety device at Main and Walnut streets.
The Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon is a really cool crosswalk safety device to assist pedestrians and cyclists with safely crossing a busy street. Pedestrian Hybrid Beacons are being installed on streets with regular traffic signals as part of the City’s coordinated signal system. Hybrid Beacons are similar to regular traffic signals except are only active for pedestrians crossing the street. Click here to learn more.
