The mundane metal boxes that hold the signal equipment are now canvases for the artist’s works, injecting a little fun and beauty into the streetscape.
Early in 2018, the Martha Reed Foundation approached the City and generously offered to sponsor a community art project. The traffic signal box wrap project was suggested and the City gladly agreed to facilitate the project in partnership with the Shelton Arts Commission.
The Washington State Patrol will be conducting a 28-day, statewide “Secure Load” emphasis patrol beginning Monday, April 15.
In conjunction with the state Department of Ecology and Washington State Department of Transportation, the effort is intended to increase road and highway safety and prevent roadside litter. Littering is punishable by fines ranging from $50 to $5,000 in Washington. The largest fines are for “lit debris” — primarily cigarettes — and for large items that can cause crashes. Failure to secure a vehicle’s load can result in a citation ranging from a $228 fine to criminal charges, if items cause property damage or injuries.
