Barrington Receives Grant to Improve Crosswalk Safety

Two crosswalks will receive flashing signs to notify drivers a pedestrian is entering the crosswalk.


The village of Barrington has secured a grant from the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) to improve the safety at four pedestrian crosswalks in the Village. The crosswalks at Main Street and Hager Avenue as well as at Main Street and Coldspring Road will receive solar powered rapid flashing beacon signs. The rapid flashing beacons are push-button activated and have been demonstrated to help alert passing motorists of a pedestrian entering the crosswalk.

In addition, these two crosswalks, plus two additional school crossings, will receive “Stop for Pedestrian in Crosswalk” signs. The village of Barrington is excited to offer this improvement to the safety at these crosswalks in order to help protect school children and other pedestrians in the village.

Our family cheered when we read this article. We've only lived on Hager Ave for a couple of years but have been witness to numerous pedestrian-car near misses. Kudos and thank you to whoever took the initiative to apply for the grant, you have no-doubt saved someone's life.

Barrington doesn't need crosswalks to improve the safety of pedestrians. The residents of Barrington need an attitude adjustment. Doesn't matter what the laws are, they will run you over if you get in their way.
