Braselton unveils unique sidewalk in downtown area

By AccessWDUN Staff

A colorful pedestrian crosswalk is now complete in downtown Braselton, encouraging connectivity between the town's park and its library.

"It's functional and marvelous art spanning across Davis Street to inspire the connection between the park, shopping, the community center and the library,” said Downtown Director Amy Pinnell, who served as the project manager.   

Construction crews completed the 75-foot thermoplastic installation last week. It is sided with reflective strips for pedestrian safety. Braselton officials believe it's the longest installation the company has ever completed.

The project became a reality with a grant of $5,000 from the Georgia Council for the Arts and its “Vibrant Communities Grant” program funded by the Georgia General Assembly. Local donors, including businesses, foundations and individuals, ensured the success of the project by providing the remaining necessary funds, according to Pinnell.

"It's another Braselton success story" said Councilman Hardy Johnson.
