Not truly public art, but we love our new crosswalk. Montgomery County Department of Planning have painted a colorful crosswalk across Spring Street connecting Fairview Road Urban Park to the northeast edge of the old Planning Department parking lot. Planners said they witnessed too many dangerous situations involving drivers, bikers and pedestrians in the large parking lot and entry road just outside their Silver Spring headquarters. The colors are meant to be highly visible and to complement the nearby Royce Hanson Urban Park green spaces and brickwork. The project was led by planner Margaret Rifkin.
