The goal is to bring greater driver awareness to the crosswalk and to create a fun, whimsical,
appealing design that will bring a smile to all who see it, encourage motorists to stop for
pedestrians using the crosswalk, and provide greater pedestrian connectivity between the
Hapeville Depot Museum Plaza and Jess Lucas Y Teen Park. This project is part of ongoing
projects that are meant to encourage walking and creating a safe environment for pedestrians. It
will also build on Hapeville’s continuing effort to increase public art for economic and community
development, as well as enhancing tourism and trade.
