The color of the crosswalks is one of the last elements remaining to complete the Walnut Street Streetscape project during which sidewalks and street pavement were replaced, new pedestrian street lights were added, and storm water facilities were added tom make this section of roadway more attractive as a part of the Walnut Street historic neighborhood and as a link between downtown and MSU campus.
