To celebrate young artists in our community, the City teamed up with Bedford Junior High art students in 2022 to create the City’s first crosswalk masterpiece. Then, the winning design, created by Axel Reynolds, was painted for all to see.

Harwood Junior High Crosswalk
In 2023, the City challenged Harwood Junior High School art students to create a design for the crosswalk located at Martin Drive, directly in front of the school. From submitted designs, a subcommittee chose three finalists and the winner, Ace Utter (pictured painting the crosswalk).
