The Florida Department of Transportation installed 17 pedestrian crossing signs in June along State Road A1A in Boca Raton in the spirit of pedestrian safety.
    The signs were erected on the double yellow lines in the center of A1A at 17 marked, but un-signalized crosswalks between Spanish River Boulevard and the Broward County line, said Jonathan Overton, assistant district traffic operations engineer for FDOT. The project cost approximately $10,000, he said. Overton said FDOT would maintain the signs and replace any if damaged in the future.
    The initiative was championed by Boca Raton Mayor Susan Haynie, who asked City Council members to support the issue in mid-February. Several beach and condo associations had requested the signs out of concern for pedestrian safety, Haynie said.
“Our No. 1 priority is the safety of our residents,” Haynie said. “It provides awareness to drivers and a safer environment for everyone.”
