The intersection of Magnolia Boulevard and Blakesee Avenue in the heart of NoHo already has a painted crosswalk for pedestrians, but district Councilman Paul Krekorian wants to boost safety by equipping the crosswalk signs with flashing lights.
Known by its official name, rectangular rapid flash beacons, Krekorian made the motion last month.
"The intersection of Magnolia and Blakeslee in the North Hollywood community is an important component of the walkability of the area, and is an appropriate location to enhance pedestrian safety through the installation of a RRFB," he wrote.
The final decision is up to the city's Transportation Committee, though a date for the vote has yet to be set.
Do you think the intersection of Magnolia and Blakesee needs flashing beacons? Is there anywhere else in NoHo that could use them?
