City of Orlando Installs New Mid-block Crosswalk with Latest in State-of-the-Art Technology

The City of Orlando recently installed a new mid-block pedestrian crosswalk that features the latest in technology, automated rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFBs), on Primrose Drive, south of Amelia Street. The installation is part of the City’s continued efforts through the Vision Zero initiative to eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2040 and as a Future-Ready city that embraces technology to address community challenges. These new RRFBs utilize state-of-the-art passive detection technology through infrared heat profiles to identify pedestrians or bicyclists within the detection zone to automatically activate the beacon without needing to push the button.
