Enhanced Pedestrian Crosswalks

Solar-powered crosswalks use solar-powered flashing lights when in use, making them more visible and safer for pedestrians.



The Town of Cochrane currently has 25 solar-powered crosswalks.

The Town’s 2022 capital and operating budgets includes funding to install two crosswalk enhancements per year (other locations may be included within capital projects). Please note: locations are subject to change based on budgets and emerging priorities.

What’s included in evaluations?

To qualify for installation, a location must meet the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) Pedestrian Control Guide and local crossing considerations. Evaluations check for proximity to schools/playgrounds and seniors’ facilities, pathway connections and any history of collisions.
