Abbey Road crossing repainted because no one is out due to coronavirus

While everyone is stuck inside social distancing because of the COVID-19 pandemic, one iconic crosswalk is getting a long-needed sprucing up thanks to the coronavirus isolation.

The crosswalk at Abbey Road, London, made famous by The Beatles, got a fresh coat of paint this week, NBC News reported.

Highway maintenance crews were able to do the work because fans were not lining up trying to recreate the famous album cover, Insider reported.

The crosswalk was named a national landmark in 2010, Ultimate Classic Rock reported.

The original photo was snapped on Aug. 8, 1969, at the corner of Abbey and Grove End roads in St. John's Wood near where The Beatles recorded most of their albums, UCR reported.
