A unique type of crosswalk made its debut on the Northwest side Tuesday. 

An equestrian crosswalk was installed at the Canada del Oro section of the Loop at Overton Road. 

The crossing features a button for pedestrians and also a button for those who are riding horses. 

Riders now won't have to dismount from their horses to press the button.

The signal was installed last month as part of a larger path project.
