Crosswalk Improvements - Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFB)

What is an RRFB?

  • Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFB) are rectangular in shape, have high-intensity signal heads that flash in a wig-wag, rapid flickering pattern once activated.  They have been shown to significantly improve driver compliance at crosswalks.  

Project Details

  • The City of Chilliwack has made significant improvements to pedestrian crossings over the last few years and now has seven fully signalized pedestrian crossings and 34 Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) crossings. 
  • Ongoing evaluations and the adding of crosswalk/crossing improvements will continue each year as the City experiences ongoing growth and the development of the Active Transportation Plan
