Beacon System Coming to Webster and Haight

 

Construction work will also begin on Monday, May 21, at Webster Street and Haight Avenue in an effort to improve pedestrian safety at that intersection. The project is expected to be completed by the end of July. Construction work hours are Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

The project includes installation of Wireless Solar, a LED rectangular rapid flashing beacon crosswalk system, push buttons, concrete and asphalt work, striping and signage.

During construction at both locations, motorists may experience minor disruptions in traffic, temporary loss of parking spaces, and noise and dust. Bus stop access will be maintained throughout both projects.

Questions or information about either project should be directed to Virendra Patel, transportation engineer, Public Works Department at 747-7900 or vpatel@alamedaca.gov.
