Committee Wants Rainbow Colored Intersections On Ocean Drive

An upcoming remake of Ocean Drive could become a lot more colorful, at the request of a Miami Beach committee.

The LGBT Business Enhancement Committee is asking for the city to include permanent markers in support of the city’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender residents and employees. Among the possibilities suggested are rainbow colored intersections, crosswalks and street signage.

For now, the plan includes shifting traffic lanes and widening sidewalks after property owners complained about a plan to completely close the street to automotive traffic.
