At the request of the Bulloch County Board of Education, the Public Works and Engineering Department have installed a pedestrian crossing with rectangular rapid flash beacons on Lester Road in front of Statesboro High School.  High numbers of pedestrians crossing the road at this location prompted the City to perform improvements to increase pedestrian safety.  Georgia State Law requires motorist to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks, therefore, motorists are advised to proceed through this area with caution, remaining alert for pedestrians even when the beacons aren’t activated.
