New “HAWK” Traffic Signals to Enhance Pedestrian Safety in Denver

DENVER – Denver Public Works is educating residents about two new High-intensity Activated crossWalks, known as HAWK signals, that are operating, starting today, along Martin Luther King Jr, Boulevard, just west of Havana in the Stapleton neighborhood. The signals stop vehicle drivers so pedestrians can safely cross.

People crossing MLK to access the new Eastbridge Town Center can now push a button to activate the HAWK signals. Drivers are required to stop when the lights are red. The signals were installed by Evergreen Development, in partnership with Forest City Stapleton, and will be operated and maintained by Denver Public Works.
