City staff is in the process of installing five sets of rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFBs) at the crosswalks of five school crossings: Galloway Avenue at Poteet High School and Kimbrough Middle School, Cartwright Road at two Horn High School crossings, and Scyene Road at West Mesquite High School. A RRFB is a pedestrian-activated warning device that begins to flash in an alternating, irregular pattern to alert motorists that a bicyclist or pedestrian is trying to cross the street. Installation has been scheduled around the Mesquite Independent School District’s calendar to allow for minimal disruption. All of the RRFBs will be installed by the first day of school on August 28 with the exception of the RRFB on Scyene Road, which is pending approval by the Texas Department of Transportation.
