DULUTH, MN– Be prepared to see some colorful crosswalks this summer.
The reason for the colors is so people can actually see them.
Four intersections are slated to be painted in Duluth and the first creative crosswalk was done Wednesday morning near Myers-Wilkins Elementary at 8th Ave East and 10th Street.
The push for pedestrian and bicycle safety comes from a local artist, Zeitgeist, neighbors, and members of the City Repair Project.
“It’s just exciting because a lot of the time, people haven’t had the chance to participate in public art. So it’ll be nice to have something in the community that people from here actually got to partake in and make happen,” said local artist, Moira Villiard.
Neighbors are encouraged to get out there and lend a helping hand.
The other intersections that will be painted will be:
Ave E & 6th St. July 20th 10:00 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Ave E & 5th St. August 6th 5-8:00 p.m. as part of A National Night Out Event
Ave E & 7th St. August 21st 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
