This week we celebrated the installation of Santa Ana’s first crosswalk art! A special dedication ceremony was hosted by the Public Works Agency on Wednesday, March 27, to unveil the crosswalk art located at 15th and Ross streets in the Willard neighborhood.

Willard Neighborhood Crosswalk Art Dedication Ceremony

Local neighborhood artist Cynthia Luján designed the crosswalk art, which is intended to create awareness about bicycle and pedestrian safety in the Willard neighborhood and throughout the Santa Ana community. The 36-by-16-foot crosswalk art is made of a thermoplastic that is engineered with safety, durability and aesthetics in mind. It is designed to improve traffic safety at intersections by enhancing the visibility of the crosswalk for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

We want to recognize both the Willard neighborhood and Santa Ana Active Streets for their dedication in making the crosswalk art happen.
