The Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) is a special pedestrian crossing device installed for crossing conditions where increased visibility and something more than a flasher is needed. The PHB was first included in the 2009 edition of the MUTCD, but some of the early applications in Arizona date back to 2000 on an experimental basis. Since Arizona was the first to install PHBs, the 20-year crash history for PHBs provides opportunity to evaluate their long-term safety effectiveness for pedestrians and other road users. This webinar will highlight the largest US based research study on the safety effectiveness of PHBs, conducted for the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT).
Additionally, agencies have been looking at ways to reduce the cost of installing a PHB, and one such way is to avoid the power hookup by using solar power. The first such application of a Solar PHB was in Tucson, Arizona, and the essential features of this application will be described, along with the related concerns with solar applications.
- Learn features of PHBs that have been effective in improving safety for not only pedestrians, but for all road users.
- Hear about the observation results of PHBs on higher speed roadways and the interaction of pedestrian and motorist at the 10 locations.
- Recognize the features of a Solar PHB, advantages and disadvantages of a solar installation after nearly a year of service.
