Saskatoon changes up crosswalks in downtown core
Pedestrian crosswalks will feature T-Rex footprints, maple leaves
Fancy new crosswalks in the downtown core are only a small part of the City of Saskatoon's plan for beautifying city streets.
Council has approved spending $1.8 million this year on beautifying the city's business districts. That includes refreshing streetscaping on Broadway Avenue, buying new paving units and developing a conceptual design for Idylwyld Drive between 20th and 25th Street.
The money from the projects comes from revenue generated by parking meters.
The Urban Design Program also installs seasonal flower pots and temporary public art.
