Six additional traffic boxes in Bedford recently got a makeover as part of the City’s Traffic Signal Box Art Project! Earlier this year, local artists were invited to showcase their creativity and further beautify Bedford by submitting designs based on two themes, “Local Inspiration” and “Celebrating Cultures” that would cover a traffic box in the City.

A huge congratulations to the following winners:

Doris Harber – Located at the intersection of Bedford Road and Martin Drive, Doris’ design was inspired by her neighbors. Whether it’s watching out for each other when you’re out of town, sharing baked goods in times of grief, or pitching in when needed, neighbors always help each other out.

Lisa and Ava Beach – This mother-daughter duo created a traffic box design that reflects different cultures working together to create our wonderful community. The box is located at Shady Brook Drive and Harwood Road.

Cuc Mauldin – Located at the intersection of Bedford Road and Brown Trail, Cuc’s design is based off of the many shapes and colors of a diverse community talking with one another.

Jennifer Wade – Jennifer, an HEB ISD art teacher, created a design that was inspired from the first night living in her new apartment. On her way home from the store, she locked eyes with a wild fox. She says, “There is a sense of calmness that comes with having a sense of country inside the city. It was then that my husband and I truly felt like we made the right choice and that we were home.” The box is located at the corner of Forest Ridge Drive and Harwood Road.

In January 2023, the City will begin accepting submissions for the next round of traffic boxes from Bedford and/or Tarrant County residents. When the project is complete, a total of 26 boxes will be wrapped! Visit the Traffic Signal Box Art Project webpage for more information on this art project.
