Community crosswalks showcase a neighborhood’s unique culture and history, or just liven up an intersection with artistic and colorful stripes. They’re requested by the community and developed with lots of input to make sure they reflect the neighborhood’s values.

In February, we formalized a community crosswalk in Pan-African colors at Martin Luther King Jr Way and Alder St.  Since then we’ve worked with community members on a plan to add 10 more throughout the Central District; and upgrade the existing one to match the new design shown below.

We hope you enjoy this new feature. Learn more about the Community Crosswalks program here.

Phase I – Scheduled for installation during the month of June.


Phase II – Scheduled for installation with the completion of the 23rd Ave Corridor Project.Phase_2_Map

Existing crosswalks will be removed over a period of one to two days and replaced with temporary materials. New crosswalks will be installed one by one starting with the Martin Luther King Jr Way and Alder St intersection throughout the month of June as weather allows.
