Signage: Flashing Beacons

A flashing beacon operates in a flashing mode to supplement regulatory or warning signs in order to increase awareness.

Flashing Beacon


  • Draws attention to regulatory or warning sign, such as reduced speed school zone signs


  • Cannot be placed close to trees due to the solar panels that power the device
  • Must have sufficient right-of-way for placement of the unit

Eligibility Considerations

  • School zone locations
  • Pedestrian crossing locations
  • Overhead flashing beacons are required for streets with two or more lanes of traffic in each direction
