Mercer Island plans for upgraded crosswalk lighting along Island Crest Way
The City of Mercer Island will be working this summer to install upgraded crosswalk lighting along Island Crest Way, as part of the City's effort to promote walking and biking.
The in-pavement lights will be removed and replaced with more visible Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon, which studies have found to be more effective in encouraging drivers to stop for pedestrians. The changes will be covered by general operating funds from the city.
The new system is more energy-efficient and will be easier to maintain.
