New Traffic Control Project Unveiled In Kailua Along Kailua Road
The Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon in action
HONOLULU - The City and County of Honolulu Department of Transportation Services (DTS) unveiled the newest traffic control project in the heart of Kailua. A Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) was installed fronting Kailua Town Center on Kailua Road, and is the first City installed RRFB on Oʻahu. The installation was made possible with a $100,000 contribution by Alexander and Baldwin.
Commonly referred to as a pedestrian activated crossing beacon, RRFBs are used to enhance pedestrian safety, and shown to reduce pedestrian-driver collisions by nearly 50%. These devices use LED lights that flash at a high frequency when activated to improve pedestrian visibility and encourage drivers to yield.
In addition to the RRFB, the crosswalk near Maui Brewing Company has been relocated to the entrance of Kailua Town Center, and a new bicycle parking corral has been installed fronting Lanikai Juice to allow for protected, on-street bike parking. No on-street parking was eliminated to install this bike parking area.
