Considerations for Selecting Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon Locations

Apr 22, 2020


The pedestrian hybrid beacon (PHB) is one of several countermeasures available to improve safety for pedestrians or bicyclists crossing busy and/or wide streets at uncontrolled crossing locations. While agencies have been using this countermeasure for over a decade, transportation professionals still have questions about when and where they should install PHBs. Webinar panelists will share new research that evaluated safety and driver yielding at PHB locations on higher speed roads (among other findings) and discuss how this research and other factors have influenced their guidelines for installing PHBs.

This webinar is supported by FHWA's Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) program which promotes proven, cost-effective countermeasures to improve pedestrian safety.
