School Safety Crosswalk Installation Planned

The City of Goleta’s Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) at School Crosswalks Project kicked off on Monday, November 1, 2021. When the project is complete, there will be three new RRFB enhanced crosswalks on Cathedral Oaks Road at the intersections of Brandon Drive, Evergreen Drive, and Carlo Drive. The RRFBs are traffic control devices designed to use flashing lights to alert motorists when pedestrians are crossing the road.

City of Goleta Public Works Director Charles Ebeling said, “Goleta is committed to establishing safe routes to schools throughout the City. We were very pleased to receive a grant for this important project and are excited to see construction begin.”

There will be minimal impacts to the public during this time. The project is expected to take until the end of the year to complete unless there are shipping delays. Thank you for your patience as we work to complete this project and improve pedestrian safety in Goleta.

Currently, there are four RRFB crosswalk locations in the City of Goleta.
