Cornelius approves crosswalk at Jetton Park
by Staff Writer
Commissioners unanimously approved a “high intensity, activated cross walk” or HAWK system, to be installed at the Jetton Park intersection after several close encounters where pedestrians were nearly hit by vehicles earlier this year.
“This is the best and cheapest option,” Town Manager Anthony Roberts told the board.
The HAWK system allows pedestrians can push a button to change the light.
There is now only a flashing yellow caution light at Jetton Park, as the intersection doesn’t meet N.C. DOT requirements for a full traffic light.
