FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pedestrian Safety Project Nearing Completion in Bishop
BISHOP – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 9 Pedestrian Safety Project will soon wrap up construction in Inyo County. The project, which began construction earlier this year, is upgrading four high-traffic crosswalks in three communities with new safety instruments. To date, crews have installed an Accessible Pedestrian System in Lone Pine at the intersection of Whitney Portal Road and U.S. 395 and a Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon at the intersection of W. Crocker Avenue and U.S. 395 in Big Pine.
For the past few weeks, crews have been working at the final two locations in Bishop, readying the crosswalks for new crossing signals at E. Elm Street and U.S. 395, and Edward Street and State Route 168 W. These pedestrian hybrid beacon signals are unlike any other signaled crossing in Bishop.
To educate the public on these new crosswalk signals, Caltrans District 9 has produced a short video explaining how they operate for pedestrians and motorists.
