Town seeks options for new lighting at crosswalks
introducing new additions to crosswalks in Hinton. Transportation Alberta has approved the use of Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs), and flashing crosswalks could eventually become a thing in the past. The RRFBs are powered by solar panels and flash LED lighting on each sign indicates a pedestrian is crossing. Gordie Lee, Director of Infrastructure Services, says the panels are a cost-effective alternative to the current flashing lights at crosswalks. He added that Hinton could enter into a trial program to see how well the RRFBs work.
