The project consists of installing a Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) signal on PCH in the La Costa Beach area, between Rambla Vista East and Rambla Vista West. The new pedestrian signal will improve safety for pedestrians and motorists.
The PHB is used to warn and control traffic at an unsignalized location to assist pedestrians in crossing a street or highway at a marked crosswalk. Unlike a traffic signal, the PHB rests in dark until a pedestrian activates it via push-button or other form of detection.
The La Costa PHB was completed and activated on October 14, 2019.
