New White Rock Pier Decorative Crosswalk

In time for the re-opening of the White Rock Pier

Take a look at the newly upgraded White Rock Pier Decorative Crosswalk. White Rock re-opened the Pier this September Labour Day long weekend. The upgrade includes a new TrafficPatternsXD Decorative Crosswalk, installed by Square One

The damaged section of the pier cost $4 million to repair, while another $11 million was needed for upgrades to the rest of the pier so it can withstand future storms.

Friends of the Pier, a community group, has also raised about $200,000 toward its $2-million contribution goal.

White Rock’s pier is the longest in Canada

Durable Crosswalks & Traffic Calming Devices That Exceed Performance Expectations

TrafficPatternsXD – Durable Crosswalks and Traffic Calming Devices incorporate a specialized preformed thermoplastic material manufactured by Ennis Flint – North America’s largest supplier of roadway markings and paint. TrafficPatternsXD incorporates a unique aggregate-reinforced formula with unprecedented wear resistance. The result is a traffic-tough decorative asphalt pavement surface that provides brick or paving stone like aesthetic without the maintenance issues.

High Skid/Slip Resistant For Safety
The factory-applied aggregate within the material and additional site surface applied aggregate provides excellent skid/slip resistance. Because anti-skid material is embedded throughout the material, as it slowly wears, new anti-skid elements are exposed.

High Durability
TrafficPatternsXD™ is field proven over many years in Canadian roadways and designed for extreme high traffic and weather conditions crosswalks and traffic calming device surfaces.


Accessibility & Maintenance
The pavement markings TrafficPatternsXD is installed within the monolithic asphalt pavement surface so no unevenness occurs over time due to settlement. The result is a smooth ‘trip-free’ pedestrian and wheelchair-friendly surface.
