Decorative Crosswalk on Commercial Drive

Community Branding

2019’s Decorative Crosswalk on Commercial Drive at three intersections have been decorated with the green, white, and red colors of the Italian flag. The city project was installed in time for Italian day on The Drive by Square One, who provide outstanding products with superior installations throughout British Columbia.

This specific Vancouver project is comprised of a variety of our premium products, including Decomark and our TrafficPatterns line


DecoMark is a Custom Wayfinding and Horizontal Surface Markings and graphics solution for application to both asphalt and concrete. Perfect for the decorative crosswalk on commercial drive. DecoMark has a wide range of potential applications including way-finding devices, traffic guidance markings, park and pathway directional markings.



TrafficPatterns is a durable preformed thermoplastic pavement markings material used primarily for streetscape and traffic calming purposes on public roads and commercial parking lots.

The crosswalks are on East 1st Avenue and Commercial, East 4th Avenue and Commercial, and Charles Street and Commercial. Stretching eight blocks, Little Italy is four blocks of Commercial Drive north and south of East 1st Avenue.



The City of Vancouver recognized these eight blocks of Commercial Drive as Vancouver’s historic Little Italy, so we wanted to give some definition to the area, and promote and expand upon that, and it’s been really well received both by residents, Vancouverites, [and] tourists that are visiting the city.
