George Street Overpass

The newly rebuilt I-95 overpass bridge at exit 27

This is the location for the first Art Bridges Pawtucket public art project. Our goal is to install highly visible art that will be experienced from the local roadway, sidewalk and the I-95 highway (most likely the southbound lanes). Today the site is populated with commercial signage, including local entities like Mr. USA 1-Hour Cleaners, and national brands such as Comfort Inn, Sunoco, and Burger King. Heavy traffic exists on the highway ramps and the overpass at commuting hours. With its busy conditions, few pedestrians cross the bridge’s sidewalks. Visually this place can be characterized as a blank slate ripe for the addition of art.
