New signs installed at Pullman pedestrian crossing

The City of Pullman installed new signs on the HAWK Pedestrian Crossing near the North Grand Avenue, Richie Street intersection. 

The updated signs provide a more detailed explanation for drivers, identifying what action to take during the solid and flashing red cycles.

The new HAWK system will blink yellow once it has been activated, it will then switch to solid yellow, followed by red. At this point, pedestrians will be allowed to walk. 

This new system comes after several pedestrians were hit by moving traffic in Pullman late last year.
