South Stockton Ped Signal

South Stockton Pedestrian HAWK Improvements Project (WT22048)

The City of Stockton was awarded a Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) grant for pedestrian enhancements. The South Stockton Pedestrian HAWK Improvements Project will increase safety for pedestrians and bicyclists, improve mobility & accessibility, and increase visibility at eight (8) locations.

Each crossing location was studied and recommendations for improvements included pedestrian hybrid beacons (HAWK), ADA-compliant curb ramps, intersection lighting, crosswalk striping, and sidewalk repair.  A High Intensity Activated crossWalK (HAWK) beacon signal acts like a standard signalized intersection to the pedestrian because it gives the pedestrian a protected phase to start crossing. However, the HAWK also keeps traffic moving by allowing traffic to continue once the pedestrian has crossed.
