Antelope Road @ Division Road - Pedestrian Crossing Improvement

A safety improvement project at the intersection of Antelope Road and Division Road in White City was recently completed and is fully operational.  Pedestrians crossing Antelope Road can now activate a set of flashing LED lights which significantly increase motorist's awareness of a person waiting to cross the street.

These installations, called Rectangular Rapid-Flashing Beacons (RRFB's), are being used more and more in challenging crossing environments to increase safety and reduce traffic accidents involving pedestrians.

Pedestrians should use this new device when crossing Antelope Road, and should avoid the temptations to take a shortcut across the roadway at other nearby locations.  With significant pedestrian traffic in the area coupled with high traffic volumes and a lot of turning movements, this intersection was identified as a good location for this technology.

Pedestrians and motorists should continue to follow all the laws and safety precautions regarding the use of crosswalks and who has what responsibilities.

Travel safely!
