A new 6-foot concrete sidewalk is being constructed along Bull Headley Road from Chadwick Way to the Bull Headley Boat Ramp. As part of this project, Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) will be installed at the Bull Headley Road/Chadwick Way intersection to increase pedestrian safety. These pedestrian signs are equipped with high-visibility flashing lights that are activated through a pushbutton. RRFBs improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety by providing a real-time warning to motorists when pedestrians and bicyclists are in, or are about to enter, the crosswalk.
This sidewalk extension will provide pedestrian connectivity between the boat ramp, neighborhoods surrounding Bannerman Road, and local schools. Construction activities began on Monday, August 14 and are expected to continue through Tuesday, October 31.
