Crosswalk at 19th Ave. Entrance

New Crosswalk at 19th Ave. Entrance

The first pedestrian-activated crosswalk traffic light in Phoenix has been installed at the 19th Avenue entrance to THS, called the High Intensity Activated Crosswalk Pedestrian Beacon (HAWK). Pressing the pedestrian push button causes the traffic lights to flash yellow and then red, giving the person a safe way to cross the busy street.

THS would like to thank the City of Phoenix and THS community for supporting our efforts in creating a safer walkway for our students and community.
