City of Pawtucket/Redesign of Highway Overpasses

Tue, 2016-08-30 13:16 -- Don Ball

Working with the community to solicit ideas, artists will design and fabricate public art elements that transform existing overpasses into lively and pleasant pedestrian connections. The project is a collaboration among the City of Pawtucket, Pawtucket Arts Collaborative, Advisory Commission for Arts and Culture, Pawtucket Department of Public Works, and Rhode Island Departments of Transportation and Health. The redesign of the highway overpasses will provide an artistically excellent connection between neighborhoods and schools divided by the highway and foster increased downtown access for pedestrians.
