Crosswalks for Walkable Communities
BROCHURE - This brochure provides a high-level overview of how Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) can improve active transportation routes. Includes FHWA research results on the effectiveness of RRFBs and details on the cost benefits of installing RRFB technology.
Walkable Streets, The Way of the Future
WHITEPAPER - A walkable community is a sustainable community. But the benefits reach beyond a city’s future population growth. Improved economic vibrancy, a sense of vitality and connectivity, and the enhanced health and well-being of citizens are all direct and immediate results of improving a community’s walkability.
