New Crosswalk Safety Enhancements Coming Soon to El Camino Real

Caltrans is installing Pedestrian Hybrid Beacons (PHBs) at several intersections along El Camino Real from San Jose to San Francisco. PHBs are flashing signals that tell drivers to stop when pedestrians are crossing the roadway. The installation process at the intersections in Palo alto (Vista Ave, Barron Ave, Fernando Ave, College Ave, and Palo Alto Ave) is scheduled to begin Monday, February 11th. The full project should be completed by summer 2019. Please see the City of Palo Alto’s Stop for Pedestrians flyer for more information on how drivers and pedestrians should use these crosswalk safety enhancements. For more information, contact Caltrans Public Information Officer for District 4, Victor Gauthier at
