The pedestrian hybrid beacon (PHB) is one of several countermeasures available to improve safety for pedestrians at uncontrolled crossing locations. This webinar will present detailed information about the PHB and showcase examples of two cities (Austin, Texas, and Columbus, Ohio) are implementing the PHB to improve pedestrian safety. Following their presentations, panelists will respond to questions from the audience.

This webinar supports FHWA's Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) program which promotes countermeasures at uncontrolled pedestrian crossings.
