MISSOULA – EmpowerMT installed a crosswalk near the Missoula Art Museum to show support for the LGBTQ Community on August 18th.

But just days after being installed, new video shows the crosswalk being vandalized by a group of motorcyclists.

EmpowerMT says no taxpayer money was used to install the sidewalk and none is being allocated for future maintenance costs.

EmpowerMT still isn’t exactly sure how the crosswalk is going to be fixed, but they said that the city might be able to clean it for them.

Below is a video of a second case of vandalism at the rainbow crosswalk. This video was recorded on Thursday night.
