City of Kirkland installs rapid flashing beacons for many crosswalks
The city of Kirkland had rapid flashing beacons installed Jan. 27 at the Northeast 70th Street crosswalk near South Rose Hill Park and throughout the city this week.
West Coast Signal worker Jorge Rivera said he and his fellow worker, Steve Reed, completed the installation on Monday, but it won’t be fully operational until next week.
The rapid flashing beacons at South Rose Hill Park are one of nine levy-funded systems that construction crews are installing. All nine systems should be operational by mid-February.
“So far, so good,” said Josh Prokop, superintendent of FORMA Construction, the contractor responsible for installation. “Everyone is pleased with the product. That’s for sure."
