San Fran Follows WeHo, Adding Rainbow Crosswalk to Castro Street

castro rainbow designs san franciscoThe rainbow, now ubiquitous in West Hollywood, is finding another place to shine on San Francisco’s Castro Street., the community website, says the Castro Streetscape Improvement District has announced the results of an online poll in which 4,500 people chose the LGBT equality symbol as the design they’d like to see on crosswalks at the intersection of Castro and 18th streets.

The design options offered in the poll were “rainbow stripes, rainbow handkerchief paisley, a design inspired by the Castro Theatre foyer tiles and a design inspired by the Muni overhead catenary wires.”

The Streetscape Improvement District hopes to have the new crosswalks painted and sidewalks widened and lighting improved in time for October’s San Francisco Gay Pride parade. West Hollywood created rainbow-colored crosswalks at the intersection of San Vicente and Santa Monica boulevards almost two years ago at a cost of $80,000.
