About the Program
We've installed more than a dozen solar-powered flashing lights at locations in Bothell.
Studies show that the irregular flash pattern of the lights increases the number of drivers who yield to pedestrians at crosswalks.
These lights are an effective, low-cost way to improve pedestrian safety.
Most of these flashing lights are funded through the Safe Streets & Sidewalks levy, approved by voters in November 2016. Additional funding for some lights has come from:
- State of Washington Transportation Improvement Board’s Complete Street grant program
- State of Washington’s Safe Route to School grant program
- Snohomish County Public Works Assistance Loan Program
- University of Washington Bothell
