IMPORTANT NOTE on Operation of Pedestrian Signals on College Avenue
It has come to our attention that many of us are not entirely clear on how the new HAWK (High intensity Activated crossWalK) pedestrian signals on College Avenue in front of the Walla Walla University campus work.  That's understandable as they are new to our valley and will take some getting used to.  Please note that it is only legal for pedestrians to cross when they have the pedestrian  “walk” or “crossing” signal ...which only shows when the overhead HAWK signals are either full or flashing red.  During this time pedestrians have the right-of-way and vehicles need to be stopped (or, if flashing, vehicles are OK to proceed if no pedestrians).  At all other times, vehicles have the right-of way and pedestrians entering the crosswalk are “jaywalking” and can be ticketed.  Please be sure to observe the will help keep pedestrians safe and traffic moving.  Thank you!
