The City of Burlington’s public art program is commissioning an artist to create a public artwork for Regal Road Bridge. Residents are invited to share their thoughts on three concept designs by bau & ćos, Karen Ho Fatt Lee, and Laura Wood & Dawn Tyrrell, which were chosen by an independent community jury. The three design proposals can be viewed and commented on by logging into or joining the City’s engagement platform: GetInvolvedBurlington.ca from Feb. 4 to 22. The comments received, along with the technical and detailed design proposals, will inform the jury’s final selection.
The artwork will consist of 10 laser-cut steel panels installed on the concrete sidewall of the bridge this summer. An independent jury reviewed 54 applications and selected three artists to develop detailed design plans. Regal Road Bridge crosses Tuck Creek and is located on Regal Road, between Oakwood Drive and Swinburne Road. The bridge was upgraded in 2019 as part of the City’s flood mitigation project.
