Pedestrian Hybrid Beacons


The Florida Department of Transportation District Seven installed four new crosswalks with pedestrian hybrid beacons on Busch Boulevard in Temple Terrace and Tampa in December 2020 – including one at Overlook Drive. The crosswalks provide more options for pedestrians to safely cross the busy roadway.
