New Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (HAWK)

The  WisDOT has activated the Green Bay area’s first High-intensity Activated crossWalK or HAWK on WIS 57 (Riverside Drive) in Allouez.

The Village of Allouez, Walkable Allouez Bike and Ped Ad Hoc
Committee and WisDOT worked together to mitigate safety concerns for
pedestrians and bicyclists crossing WIS 57 (Riversdale Drive) to reach the Fox
River State Recreational Trial. With an Annual Daily Traffic Volume (ADT) of
14,000 vehicles/day, a 35 mph speed limit and no traffic control devices, the
HAWK was an acceptable solution for pedestrians and bicyclists to cross this
section of Allouez safely.

Take a look at the HAWK in action:
