SR 104 - Edmonds City Park Vicinity Mid-Block Pedestrian Crossing - Completed February 2015


A unique, signalized crosswalk began operating in February 2015 on SR 104 near Edmonds City Park. 

The crosswalk is known as a High-intensity Activated CrossWalk or HAWK.

This is the first HAWK signal on a state highway in Snohomish and King counties. It gives drivers a clear indication of when to stop for pedestrian or cyclists. When no one needs to cross, the signal remains dark, allowing drivers to proceed at normal speeds.
