As part of its continuing effort to improve walkability in the downtown, the city is installing rapid flashing beacons at four locations along East Palmetto Park Road.
The beacons draw attention to approaching vehicles as pedestrians look before crossing the street.
They are being installed at crosswalks at Southeast Third Avenue and between Southeast Fourth and Fifth Avenues.
The work, which began in mid-November, is intended to improve pedestrian safety at key crosswalks.
