Creative Crosswalk Lets You Walk On Raindrops
The Portland Bureau of Transportation initiative aims at improving pedestrian safety and contributing to the district's vitality
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) recently unveiled the first of its creative crosswalks, which add an artistic design to the city’s streets. The pair of installations feature an eye-catching pattern of raindrops and a large umbrella. They have been introduced in order to help improve pedestrian safety and contribute to the district’s vitality. Planned and designed with community input, the creative crosswalks are located in Old Town, helping to safely guide pedestrians across NW Third Avenue and Davis Street.
