Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB)

A pedestrian hybrid beacon is a traffic control device that assists pedestrians in crossing a street or highway at a marked but unsignaled crosswalk. This special type of traffic light utilizes a system of indicator lights and signs that alerts drivers and controls vehicle traffic.

Pedestrian hybrid beacons have been deployed across the nation, including the Phoenix and Tucson metro areas, to improve safety for pedestrians.
