StreetPrintXD Crosswalks on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE, Washington DC

Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE in Washington DC recently added 29 high-performance StreetPrintXD crosswalks. These decorative thermoplastic crosswalks were installed from Howard Road SE to Good Hope Road SE.

StreetPrintXD will provide a practical, durable, and attractive solution for an area that is high in vehicle and pedestrian traffic. StreetPrintXD is a popular option in areas like this because they give the same great look of real brick pavers; but are more cost-effective and more road-safe, providing a smooth and trip-hazard free path across busy roads.  unlike regular thermoplastics, which are typically 90 mils thick with glass beads; StreetPrintXD is 180 mils thick and aggregate reinforced. Making it stronger, as well as non-skid. Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE is now road-safe and trip-hazard free.

Alternative Paving Concepts installed these crosswalks  in a brick pattern and color, complimenting the brick buildings along MLK.
