Street art for traffic calming

Columbus, OH
Street art for traffic calming

Painting the street, murals, sculptures—basically anything that creates visual interest and surprise—also slows down vehicular traffic.

Have you seen the mural that Clintonville painted in front of the Co-op, on intersection Crestview and Calumet? It's meant for traffic calming and it actually adds a bit of community pride for that area.

Josh Lapp Columbus,

Love this idea. Works on many levels: a) traffic calming, b) walkablility- adding interesting things for pedestrians to look at while making them safer, c) public art

This would be a great idea to develop this spring since the mayor established the public art program. A great way of mixing art and local talent with safety and an underlying intention. Is there a way to find the most dangerous intersections in Columbus and propose traffic calming art for the top 3?

As an engineer, I support this idea. As an artist, I LOVE this idea! I recall seing intersections painted with the 'CityYear' logo several years ago, I wonder if anyone noticed any affect on traffic?
