Silver Gate Elementary students returned to campus this week after winter break with a new flashing crosswalk at the intersection of Catalina Boulevard and Orchard Avenue behind the school in Point Loma. The new safety feature is part of the city’s Vision Zero plan to eliminate all traffic deaths by 2025 and was adopted by the City Council last year.

The plan calls for more visible crosswalks and signage along with pedestrian countdown timers, audible pedestrian signals, street lighting, and flashing beacons to help make pedestrians and drivers more aware.
