Pedestrian Actuated Beacons at Mid-block Crosswalks
Jefferson County continues to enhance existing mid-block crosswalks to include pedestrian actuated beacons.  These beacons are the Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) type and are highly visible once activated.

Installations at these locations were completed August 17, 2018:
  • Quincy Avenue at C-470 Trail
  • Simms Street south of Belleview Avenue (park trail crossing)
2019 installation locations coming soon!

Electronic Curve Warning / Speed Radar Signs:

For the second straight year, Jefferson County is installing special electronic signs in advance of curves with high potential for crash reduction.

Installations at these locations were completed August 17, 2018:
  • Charros Drive south of Dekker Drive
  • Golden Gate Canyon Road east of Bear Road
