A new flashing pedestrian light (RRFB) has been installed this week on Rhode Island Ave at Hollywood Rd.

The accompanying pedestrian ramps will be tentatively constructed by the end of next week. This will help prevent pedestrian from walking on the grass to the service road.

The City Council allocated money in its FY2015 budget to buy and install this additional crossing light. I met with the City and the County engineers two weeks ago to check the installation plan.

Currently, we have 2 RRFBs on Rhode Island Ave in north College Park – one near Duvall field and another at Muskogee st.

We hope the new RRFB at Hollywood Rd. will help residents and Hollywood Elementary school students cross Rhode Island avenue safely during morning and afternoon rush hours.
