When school is in session at Sherwood Forest Elementary and Interlake High School in Bellevue, the crosswalks become a hub of activity while kids and parents come and go each day.
This year, the City of Bellevue has added some artwork to the main crosswalk at NE 24th Street and 164th. If you drive by you will notice that the large, grey traffic light utility box is now brightly covered with artwork that promotes crosswalk safety.
This is not the first utility box artwork for the City of Bellevue. There is a similar one in Lake Hills on the corner of SE 8th that depicts information about the historic Wilburton area.
The artwork is printed on a large vinyl sheet and then is custom cut on site and wrapped around the utility box. Vinyl is used in favor of paint
The two of the installers from Morup signs www.morupsigns.com said that both of the artwork installations in Bellevue are a nice addition to each of the corners and promote local history and/or safety for the community.
