Touch-less green-light crossing was activated at selected intersections in West Hollywood Friday in an attempt to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

The move will allow pedestrians to not have to press crosswalk buttons in order to cross several streets, according Sheri A. Lunn, West Hollywood’s public information Officer.

“Modifications have been completed for crossings along the entire length of Santa Monica Boulevard within West Hollywood” and at highly used intersections on Beverly Boulevard and Fairfax, Fountain and La Brea avenues, Lunn said.

Who is the manufacturing company of these touchless buttons?

Andrew Solmssen

Does this include Fountain and Fairfax? Crossing Fountain north and southbound on Fairfax still seems to require requesting a signal with the button.
