On Thursday, June 9 from 9 a.m. to approximately 3 p.m., 3 Avenue South will be closed at the 6 Street South intersection for painting of rainbow and transgender crosswalks.
Although there will be no through-traffic during these hours, access will still be available to businesses in the adjacent area.
These two crosswalks will be highly visible to pedestrians and motorists alike during Lethbridge Pride Fest June 16-24. The painting of rainbow and transgender crosswalks was approved by City Council on May 8 after a request by Lethbridge Pride Fest representatives. Pride Fest will be covering the costs involved.
