Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs)

RRFB Reston Town CenterTo enhance pedestrian and bicycle safety, Fairfax County is working with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to install nine new Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFBs) at targeted crosswalks around the County.

The flashing yellow lights, when activated, signal to drivers and bicyclists using the roadway to yield to those in the crosswalk before proceeding. RRFBs are a warning device for drivers. Pedestrians need to watch for approaching traffic even if the RRFB has been activated.

The Fall 2019 improvements are a result of a $1,263,000 grant through VDOT's Pedestrian Safety Action Plan and funded by the the Federal Highway Authority's Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). The grant also includes other pedestrian safety improvements including refuge islands and a signalized crosswalk.
