Innisfil has painted its crosswalks with rainbow jigsaw puzzle pieces to help residents better identify them and to beautify the area.

“These beautiful, painted crosswalks are meant to grab everyone’s attention and get people thinking and talking about the best way to create walkable, connected communities,” Innisfil Mayor Lynn Dollin said in a statement.

The town is also gathering comments from residents during the initiative to help with making future decisions about its transportation network.
