Barrington’s Bicycle-Pedestrian Advisory Committee Seeks Submissions for Crosswalk Pavement Designs

See online submission form with design guidelines and more information

The Town Bicycle-Pedestrian Advisory Committee is seeking artist submissions for a creative community crosswalk painting at the Wood-Waseca Intersection, also including an East Bay Bike Path connector.

Barrington residents, including high school students and beyond, are encouraged to submit their designs for the crosswalk and/or connector now through Monday, June 5 at 7:00 PM. The design guidelines and submission form are available through the Town’s website. Public voting will take place at the Barrington Street Festival on June 11, which will be factored in, with the Bicycle-Pedestrian Advisory Committee voting on the final design at their July 17 meeting. The final design will be used for a community crosswalk painting at the site in early September as a kickoff to October’s National Pedestrian Safety Month.

“The Committee formed in late April, and each of its members are excited to provide a unique opportunity for a creative project that builds excitement and encouragement for safer streets in Barrington, drawing attention and awareness to a new vision that our roads can and will work for all modes of transportation,” said Francisco Lovera, Vice chair of Bicycle-Pedestrian Advisory Committee.  

The project is funded through a Rhode Island Streets Transformation Project Mini Grant from the Rhode Island Department of Health, Grow Smart RI, and the Providence Streets Coalition.

“Thank you for taking all the steps to set the stage for success… launching a Bicycle-Pedestrian Advisory Committee and creating a Complete Streets Action Plan, and then this creative tactical urbanism proposal. We can’t wait to see the results!” said John Flaherty, Deputy Director of Grow Smart RI.
