Waupun Installs Pedestrian Beacon Along Main Street

(Waupun) Waupun has installed a pedestrian beacon at the intersection of Main Street and Mill Street. The installation of the pedestrian-activated Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon, or RRFB, is to improve pedestrian access and increase safety. The RRFB provides a high-visibility warning by using LED’s in an irregular flashing pattern to alert drivers that the crosswalk is in use. Motorists should be prepared to stop when the RRFB has been activated. The new beacon was paid for by a grant from a private foundation in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin – Madison School of Nursing. Its installation was requested by the Waupun Community Coalition on Aging.
