Phoenix doesn’t pave their crosswalks

They use brick.

…just saw this post. I believe what that actually is is colored concrete, with a pattern stamp on top to look like brick. It is real cheap, and you can fake that stuff into looking like marble, slate, brick or whatever. The concrete is pured, then stained to match whatever color you want, and if you want a “faux” flooring lok to it, it is stamped somewhere in the process. Reason I know this is because we are thinking about using it in our new house (25 cents/foot) as opposed to tile which is $1+/foot.

The following are examples of the technique. Google for more info:
