#Crosswalk Enhancements on Powhatan Avenue#

Construction work has begun at two intersections on Powhatan Avenue to improve pedestrian safety.

  • At Powhatan & 49th Streets, two new streetlights are being installed to improve lighting for pedestrians in the crosswalks
  • At Powhatan & 48th Streets, Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) similar to the type installed over Spring Break will provide flashing lights, decorative sign posts, new signs, and additional lighting for pedestrians. This system will replace the in-roadway lighting that had been installed at this location. The RRFBs will be located at both the northern and southern crosswalks at 48th Street and Powhatan Avenue.

The construction work will include removing existing curb ramps, directional drilling for electrical conduit, and pouring new concrete bases for the signs. Please use caution when using these intersections during the construction period.

If you have any questions please feel free to call Transportation and Parking Services at 757-683-4004.
