Crosswalk painting

Crosswalk painting is an annual City program that involves repainting 8,500 crosswalks and refreshing stencils. This includes painting arrows, yield symbols, stop bars, and bike symbols that have become faded during the winter months. This helps make the crossing location more visible to both pedestrians and vehicles.

​​When crosswalks are painted

Crosswalk painting in school zones and residential areas is done during the day (generally Monday – Thursday).

Crosswalk painting on major roads and commercial/industrial areas is done during the night (Monday – Thursday).

Roads are rarely shut down completely to accommodate crosswalk painting, but lane restrictions are typically required to ensure work can be done safely.

What materials are used to mark crosswalks

The City currently uses a low VOC paint on the majority of the painted crosswalks. However, more durable materials have been used in some locations such as 5 Avenue S.W.

The City is actively on the lookout for the most cost effective, durable materials that is in compliance with the Environmental Federal Law.

How weather impacts crosswalk painting

Cold weather does impact the ability of City crews to paint crosswalks. Unfortunately, paint won’t stick to cold roadways, which is why the painting crosswalk program begins in mid-May.

Report faded or missing crosswalk paint

Calgarians can report locations where crosswalks need to be repainted online.

eService - Report crosswalk paint requirements 

Request a new painted crosswalk

The City of Calgary uses a warrant system to determine if a crosswalk location should be painted and/or have crosswalk signs installed. Factors considered include:

  • pedestrian volume and age range
  • traffic volume and road classification
  • speed limit
  • road geometry
  • mid-block crossing locations
  • amenities in the area, such as schools.

eService - Request a new crosswalk location

How you can help

The City paints 2,850,530 meters of lane markings every year. Getting this work done is a collaborative effort.

We rely on the co-operation of citizens to drive with caution when City crews are painting crosswalks in their area.
