The City of Sonoma Public Works crews successfully installed Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) at the intersection of Broadway and Clay Street and Broadway and France/Andrieux Street. This task is part of the larger Broadway Pedestrian Crossing Improvements project. The process included activities like excavating and setting up foundations, erecting poles, installing necessary equipment and signs, and establishing connections to solar panels. The next focus for the crews will be the remaining three upgraded crossing points along Broadway: Malet Street and Patten Street. The entire installation of RRFBs at all these locations is anticipated to be finished by the fall of 2023.
