FAYETTEVILLE - Runners, walkers and cyclists in Fayetteville are now using a unique trail crosswalk.

The city installed the crosswalk a few months ago where the Frisco Trail crosses South School Avenue. The High Intensity Activated CrossWalK, or HAWK, is the first one of its kind in Arkansas. It works a bit differently than traditional signals.

A flashing yellow light means a pedestrian needs to cross, and drivers should use caution. A solid yellow light means drivers should stop if possible. Solid red lights mean stop for a crossing pedestrian. Flashing red lights mean drivers should stop first, and then drive on if there are no pedestrians.

The city of Rogers also has a HAWK signal located on Pleasant Grove Road.
