Crosswalk beacon planned for intersection near schools

The Lake Havasu City Council is scheduled to discuss tonight the possible installation of a crosswalk beacon at the intersection of Acoma Boulevard and Pima Drive.

The crosswalk beacon would provide safe passage for pedestrians as they cross the intersection, as it would stop traffic while pedestrians remain in the crosswalk. Corners of the intersection would also be reconstructed under the proposal, with ramps to bring the intersection up to ADA standards. According to Project Manager Jeffrey Herb, these improvements were identified in the Strategic Transportation Safety Plan by the Lake Havasu Metropolitan Planning Organization.

According to Herb, the project would be fully funded by no more than $460,000 in Arizona Highway Safety Improvement Program grant funding, with no cost to the city. Lake Havasu City would still be responsible for any costs exceeding the budgeted amount, however.

The project is scheduled for construction in spring 2020, according to Herb.

The City Council is expected to vote on the potential construction at its meeting at its 6 p.m. meeting tonight at the Lake Havasu City Police Department’s City Council chambers.
