HAWK Signal Installation West Main Street http://www.cheshirect.org/news/hawk-signal-installation-west-main-street/ 2016-06-23T09:22:53 Melanie Roberts http://www.cheshirect.org/news/hawk-signal-installation-west-main-street/ The Town of Cheshire hereby provides notice to the public regarding a new traffic control beacon known as a High Intensity Activated Crosswalk (HAWK) device on West Main Street (CT Route 68/70).  This signal is scheduled to be tested and programmed on June 27, 2016, and will be placed into operation shortly after successful completion of the testing.  The new HAWK beacon has been installed where the Farmington Canal Heritage Greenway crosses West Main Street between Railroad Avenue and Willow Street.  Once operational, this device may be activated by pedestrians using push buttons located on either side of the roadway.  Upon activation, the beacon will begin by flashing yellow and then transition to steady yellow to warn motorists, and traffic will be required to stop on red in favor of the crossing pedestrian.  It should be noted that this signal will not be illuminated unless activated, however motorists should always be cognizant of the striped crosswalk and potential for pedestrians and cyclists in the roadway.  Adherence to the signal is legally enforceable as with any other traffic control signals or devices.  Any questions should be directed to the Cheshire Police Department at (203) 271-5500.
