Pedestrian Crosswalks on El Camino Real in Atherton

You may have noticed that there are now several operating pedestrian hybrid beacons on El Camino Real in Atherton. The pedestrian beacons are installed on El Camino Real at the following intersections in Atherton:

  • Isabella Ave.
  • Alejandra Ave.
  • Almendral Ave.

The pedestrian beacon is designed to stop vehicles at crosswalks and provide pedestrians a controlled crossing through a series of steady and flashing yellow and red lights. 


How it works.....

When a pedestrian is ready to cross they will activate the beacon. 

  • YELLOW lights signal that a driver must slow down and prepare to STOP
  • Drivers must STOP when the RED Light is Steady.
  • Once the RED Light is Flashing AND the Crosswalk is Clear, the driver may proceed through the intersection AFTER a complete stop has been made. 
See IMAGE below for the complete sequence of the beacon.
