Crosswalk Improvements

Responsive Margin


Continuing to improve crossings across the city is vital to supporting a safe, comfortable, and accessible experience for people walking. Upgraded crosswalks offer improved visibility for people walking, increased user-friendliness, and help maintain driver attentiveness. Salt Lake City installs a variety of different treatments to improve crosswalks. This page highlights these treatments and the projects that have improved crossing facilities around Salt Lake City.

Pedestrian HAWK Signals

“HAWK” is an acronym for High Intensity Activated crossWalK and was originated in Tucson, Arizona. This hybrid pedestrian signal has since been safely and successfully used throughout the United States. The signal has been approved and adopted into standard traffic engineering manuals. Below are upcoming HAWK additions across the city.

Crosswalk Enhancements

Crosswalk enhancements are made up of a broad variety of safety improvements involving pedestrian crossing facilities. Curb extensions, rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFBs), median refuge islands, striping, signage and bringing facilities up to ADA compliance are typical treatments that are used to enhance a pedestrian crossing.

Along with upgrades to these crossings, the Transportation Division has overseen the installation and updates to pedestrian flashers across 30 locations throughout the city. These updates may include new poles, increases in signage and new foundations for the poles. The updates were funded through the Capital Improvement Program (CIP).
