Seattle Crosswalks Get Colorful Ahead of Pride Parade [PHOTO]
One neighborhood in Seattle woke up to the roads being a bit more colorful this morning.
After years of discussion, Mayor Ed Murray announced this morning that 11 crosswalks in Seattle's Capital Hill neighborhood would be transformed into rainbows. The project has been discussed for years, and is being finalized during Seattle's Pride Week. The Capital Hill neighborhood is known in the area for being the heart of the LGBT community.
The project is estimated to cost the city around $100,000. The funds came from local developers, as well as fees paid to the city whenever the streets are closed down for events.
The rainbows are estimated to last 3-5 years, but the city plans to maintain these for years to come.
