TH&B Crossing Bridge Project

The City of Brantford is calling upon community members to design and paint panels of the TH&B Crossing Bridge. Help us revitalize this important link in our vibrant trails network, prevent inappropriate graffiti and foster a sense of belonging through public art.

There are 112 panels available for community members to submit designs for review. Each panel is 7-8 ft. wide by 4.4 ft. tall. Selected candidates will be able to paint their assigned panels in September and October 2022. The City will provide painting supplies, such as Tremclad liquid and spray paint in a variety of colours.
