3D Crosswalk

It's not 3D now, but you can see where it used to exist.

[Alan R. Knight, 06/16/2020]

The 3D illusion looked great when it was painted in late 2018, but faded quickly. The city said it would repaint the crosswalk if it proved effective at slowing traffic. Guess it didn't.

A 3D Crosswalk in Kansas City! One of two (so far) 3D crosswalks in Kansas. The other is in the city of Olathe.

[Spencer, 02/13/2019]

The crosswalk was painted in Nov. 2018, and was inspired by similar 3D crosswalks in Iceland. Its purpose is to get drivers to slow down, so don't speed along the street to see it.
