Local residents may have noticed something different about the usually plain gray metal traffic boxes on various streetlight intersections along N. Main Street and NC 62 (Trindale Road). Sponsored in part by the city’s Community Appearance Commission, the traffic boxes at 10 intersections were covered in a vinyl wrap that features a variety of artwork. This artwork was reproduced from masterpieces created by local students from John Lawrence Elementary School, Braxton-Craven Middle School, Archdale-Trinity Middle School, Trinity High School, and Wheatmore High School. This lengthy project started in March and the City of Archdale and its residents are excited about this new addition. A special thank you is in order to NCDOT for their approval of the project, as well as to Matthews Mobile Media of Greensboro for installing the wraps and City of Archdale Planning Staff for coordinating logistics and encroachments with NCDOT. The City of Archdale looks forward to having this artwork up until the spring, when new artwork will replace the old pieces.
