The City of Orlando has just installed a new midblock pedestrian crosswalk on Primrose Drive, just south of Amelia Street.
According to a release from the City, the crosswalk makes use of new automated flashing beacons that use a passive detection technology that operates on infrared heat profiles to identify pedestrians and cyclists within a certain perimeter and automatically activate the beacons without the need to push a button.
Other completed crosswalk improvements include:
- Raised midblock crosswalks on Bruton Boulevard near Dr. James R. Smith Neighborhood Center.
- New signage and pavement markings at a new midblock crosswalk at Z.L. Riley Park.
- New marked crosswalk on Fort Lane Drive at Gore Street.
- New crosswalk with signage and pedestrian signal on Fern Creek Avenue at Curry Ford Road.
