BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A new traffic signal designed to make walking safer for pedestrians has been activated on Kenmore Ave.
The High-Intensity Activated CrossWalk (HAWK) signal was placed at the intersection of the North Buffalo Rails-to-Trails path.
Here’s how it works:
“The HAWK signal on Kenmore Avenue will provide improved safety for pedestrians and cyclists as they exit the popular North Buffalo Rails-to-Trails,” Mayor Byron Brown said. “This is another example of the great collaborations that are underway in Buffalo to further improve our roadway infrastructure. With city, state, and federal funds, we finished an $8.5 million investment along Kenmore Avenue, while also linking our popular North Buffalo Rails to Trails project to the Tonawanda Rails to Trails pathway. By introducing the new Hawk signal, we will further improve pedestrian safety.”
With the HAWK signal’s activation, the $8.5 million Kenmore Avenue Reconstruction Project is complete.
