Volunteer for Gentilly Crossings - Walkable Streets Pop-Up Installation
Sat, Jul 28, 2018
7:00 am – 4:00 pm
Installation locations are along Mirabeau Avenue at Elysian Fields and Saint Anthony Avenues.
To improve safety and community health, Bike Easy is temporarily remaking two busy intersections in the neighborhood — Elysian Fields at Mirabeau Avenue and Saint Anthony at Mirabeau. Staff and volunteers will install elements to calm vehicular traffic including high-visibility crosswalks, curb extending bumpouts, and vertical flex-posts to better protect people walking across the street.
Volunteer duties include:
- General Volunteers – Set up cones, direct traffic, paint crosswalks and bike paths
- Mural Assistants – Sweep surface, apply backing layer, paint by numbers, and stencil imagery at St Anthony & Mirabeau
- Rain Garden Volunteers – Build out a ‘mock’ rain garden at Elysian Fields and Mirabeau
