“Bright, unique, decorative designs will be installed on the City’s new downtown crosswalks … starting Thursday, Jan. 12,” the city said in a press release. “The work will start at the new raised crosswalk in the 200 block of East Ponce de Leon Avenue and will proceed to the west, with the new speed table at Ponce de Leon and Clairemont Avenue being done last. One additional crosswalk will be located in the 100 block of East Trinity Place.”

The work should take seven to 10 days, the city says.

“Limited two-way traffic will be maintained at each installation site through the use of flaggers, but drivers should expect delays during the work,” the press release says. “All sidewalks will remain open during the duration of construction. We encourage visitors to park and walk to their favorite restaurants and retail establishments.”

Here are the designs being painted on the crosswalks:
