Shot Pouch Greenway
The Shot Pouch Greenway is an approximate 3 mile pedestrian greenway that connects Dillon Park in the north to Swan Lake in the south. The greenway is meant to encourage recreational walking, jogging, and biking, provide additional connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists and connect people to nature.
Funds for this initiative come from the 2014 voter-approved referendum to continue Sumter’s Penny for Progress Capital Projects Sales Tax.
How to use a HAWK Signal?
HAWK Signal Operation Sequence (Driver Responsibilities)
No action required; no pedestrian activity.
A pedestrian has pressed the button and is waiting to cross. Driver may proceed, carefully observing the crosswalk area, in case pedestrians step out unexpectedly.
Drivers should slow and, if able, stop safely; the HAWK signal is about to change to red and give the pedestrian the “WALK” sign.
All vehicles are required to stop to allow pedestrians to cross.
Drivers may proceed, one at a time, if the crosswalk is clear of pedestrians.
The signal then goes back to dark until a pedestrian pushes the crosswalk button to restart the sequence.
