HAWK Signal

The City has installed a new type of traffic signal - a HAWK (High-intensity Activated Cross Walk) at 260 Union.


The HAWK makes it easier for pedestrians to cross Union Blvd. to access both businesses and the Federal Center light rail station.  It also minimizes traffic delays.

Here is how it works:





The HAWK might seem confusing, but just remember these easy rules:


Flashing Yellow :  Slow down and get ready to stop.


Solid Yellow :  Stop if possible.


Solid Red :   Stop.


Flashing Red : Stop and yield to pedestrian. Then go.
