BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The city of Buffalo now has a new HAWK signal to help pedestrians cross a busy stretch of Kenmore Avenue. "HAWK" stands for High-Intensity Activated CrossWalK.
The new signal is located on Kenmore Avenue at the intersection of the North Buffalo Rails-to-Trails path.
It's the first high-tech signal of its kind in the city of Buffalo. The town of Tonawanda installed a similar signal on Sheridan Drive over the summer, which was the first in the state.
Buffalo DPW Commissioner Steve Stepniak described how the signal works.
