Rainbow crosswalk brightens intersection

Monday, October 11, 2021 by Tai Moses

In honor of National Coming Out Day, which is today, the city is installing a colorful crosswalk at a downtown intersection. According to a news release from the Transportation Department, “The design is based on a previous design requested by the community and incorporates colors from the Progressive Pride Flag which includes black and brown stripes to represent people of color, and baby blue, pink and white, which represent the transgender community.” Mayor Steve Adler, City Manager Spencer Cronk, Austin City Council members, Transportation Director Rob Spillar, and Austin LGBTQ Quality of Life Advisory commissioners will be on hand at 9 a.m. to watch the installation, which includes three nearby utility boxes. The intersection at 400 Colorado St., at the corner of Bettie Naylor (Fourth) will be closed from 3 a.m.-5 p.m.
