The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) plans to activate the High-Intensity Activated Crosswalk (HAWK) pedestrian activated signal on US 41/N Tamiami Trail at 1st Street in downtown Sarasota tomorrow morning Thursday, June 28, weather permitting.
The HAWK signal provides protected pedestrian crossings, stopping traffic as needed. Once activated, a solid red indication is provided to motorists directing them to stop. The solid red indication advances to a flashing red that allows motorists to proceed with caution once a pedestrian is clear.
The video links below provide information for pedestrians and motorists on how to use the HAWK signal and what each indication means.
