FHWA issues Interim Approval 21 – Rectangular Rapid-Flashing Beacons at Crosswalks

We’re excited to announce that on March 20, 2018, FHWA issued Interim Approval 21 – Rectangular Rapid-Flashing Beacons at Uncontrolled Marked Crosswalks

*********************************************************************************************
“The FHWA has confirmed that the patents on the RRFB device that was the subject of Interim Approval 11 have been expressly abandoned and the concept of the RRFB is now in the public domain. Because of this action, the RRFB is once again eligible for interim approval status and the FHWA is issuing this new Interim Approval for the RRFB.”

“Any jurisdiction that wishes to use a device or application that has received Interim Approval must submit a written request to the FHWA, Director of the Office of Transportation Operations. The request must indicate whether blanket jurisdiction-wide approval is being requested or must state the location(s) where the device will be used, and must include the jurisdiction’s agreement to comply with items B, C, and D in paragraph 18 of Section 1A.10 of the 2009 MUTCD.

The letter of request (on agency letterhead) should be addressed to the Director of the Office of Transportation Operations, Federal Highway Administration, and should be sent electronically as an attachment (PDF or Word Document) to an e-mail to: MUTCDofficialrequest@dot.gov.”
