Carmanah RRFBs Add Much-Needed Safety to a Boulevard Crosswalk in New Mexico
Carmanah installed four R920 Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) to a dangerous mid-block crossing on King Boulevard in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. The installation aimed to improve pedestrian access at the entrance to a park situated on a road with high traffic and higher than average speeds.
To improve pedestrian safety, Carmanah provided 10 rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFBs) for the project, positioned in pairs at each of the five entry points of the roundabout. Read the story or watch the video here.
