Traffic Signal Box Project 2011

The Great Falls Business Improvement District (BID) is pleased to announce the installation of its first Traffic Signal Box (TSB) Project.  The event began on Friday, August 19th and ended on Wednesday, August 24th.    The TSB’s on Central Avenue from Park Dr. to 7th St (with the exception of the corner of Central and 4th St S) and one additional TSB at the corner of 2nd Ave S and 2nd St were transformed into works of art by seven local artists. Within the BID boundaries there are 21 TSB’s; seven have been completed this season with the goal of completing the remaining 14 over the next few years.

There will be a reception held for the artists on Friday, September 2nd in the BID office at 13 5th Street North.  Everyone is welcome to attend the reception.
