Complete My Street!

Congratulations to our Complete My Street Contest Winner, Montclair, New Jersey 
The City of Montclair won an R920 Rectangular Rapid Flashing BEacon System to improve pedestiran access and saftey at the crosswalk on Bloomfield Avenue at Midland Avenue. Montclair was chosen out of 42 locations due to overwhelming public and business support. The crosswalk locations was in major need of improvement due to being located on a busy four-lane roadway with high volumes of foot traffic. 
Check out Montclair's video on how City Officials and Bike/Walk advocates expect the system to improve access and saftey for citizens in their city.


Implementing flashing beacon technology into a city or municipality requires understanding the business case for doing so.  These resources can help.

Here you will find a wealth of information on how communities are currently using flashing beacon technology, along with access to third-party reports, presentation templates, and links to other online resources that can help make the case for implementing flashing beacons in your community.

About RRFBs

How it works

RRFBs are high intensity yellow warning lights that flash rapidly when actuated by a pedestrian push button.  On each approach to the crosswalk there are lights on both the left and right hand side which ‘frame the crosswalk’.  A smaller light is directed across the crosswalk to provide confirmation that the system is activated.  Additional lights can be mounted in the median or in advance of the crosswalk.
