Austin will get some more new pedestrian crosswalk signals in the coming weeks.

Austin City Council has approved five new pedestrian hybrid beacons to be installed at Burnet at Ashdale, Pleasant Valley at Sheringham, Congress Ave at E. Alpine Rd, Manchaca at Larchmont, and Oltorf at Burton Dr. A $2.5 million federal grant is paying for the signals as well as pedestrian countdown timers city-wide and pedestrian signals at 27 other intersections. Once bids are submitted and accepted installation could be sometime next year.
