Del Norte County pedestrians in Crescent City crossing US Highway 101 about one mile south of Washington Boulevard will notice something new this fall! A Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) is a special type of crosswalk. When activated, PHB's use flashing and solid lights to signal vehicles to stop. Using a Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon is simple for both drivers and pedestrians.
