  • Rapid Flashing Becon to Signal Crossing

    Lincoln is going to try out a new device- rectangular rapid flashing beacons - to help with safety at spots where recreational trails cross city streets according to the Journal Star. When bikers, runners and walkers on the trail reach North 33rd Street, they can push a button to activate the flashing lights, then wait for the cars to stop.

    Board members of the GPTN are excited and behind this new signal. Members of the board have seen these beacons used successfully in other states, such as California and Colorado.
