City of Burlington seeking community feedback on proposed public art piece


Published February 4, 2021 at 2:57 pm

The City of Burlington recently announced that it would be commissioning an artist to create a public art piece for the Regal Road bridge and is inviting residents to share their feedback on three proposed designs.

The Regal Road Bridge crosses Tuck Creek and is located on Regal Road, between Oakwood Drive and Swinburne Road.

In 2019, the bridge was upgraded as part of the City’s flood mitigation project.

The artwork will consist of 10 laser-cut steel panels that will be installed on the concrete sidewall of the bridge this summer.

An independent jury reviewed a total of 54 applications and selected three artists to develop detailed design plans.

The jury chose bau & ćos, Karen Ho Fatt Lee and Laura Wood & Dawn Tyrrell.

The three proposed designs can be viewed online and will inform the jury’s final selection upon receiving feedback from the community.
