Grand Opening for City’s New Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon Canceled

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Grand Opening of the Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) scheduled for June 28 at the intersection of Del Mar Boulevard and Ocean Drive has been canceled. There will be no rescheduling for this event. The new PHB will be activated for pedestrian use at a later date. 

The new pedestrian traffic signal will be similar to the crosswalk on Staples Street near City Hall and will enhance pedestrian safety and provide safer access from the nearby neighborhoods across Ocean Drive to the park. Improvements for the PHB project include installation of foundations, signal poles, mast arms, signal heads and beacons, audio and visual features, and a controller cabinet. The PHB traffic signal installation is a joint City and TXDOT participation project.
