SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco’s famed LGBT-friendly Castro district will be showing more of its gay pride when the city paints four crosswalks in the colors of the Rainbow Pride flag.
The multicolored crosswalks at the intersection of Castro and 18th streets will be added as part of a larger neighborhood improvement project for The Castro, according to the the Castro/Upper Market Community Benefits District.
“The Castro Streetscape project will make one of our most popular and celebrated neighborhoods more livable and welcoming for residents and visitors,” said San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee. “The new design also will improve pedestrian safety.”
The project is expected to be completed by October.
Similar crosswalks were installed in West Hollywood in 2012.
