General

 The Department recognizes the effects of transportation facilities on local communities, and encourages the integration of these facilities into their surroundings to enhance and reflect the aesthetic, environmental, scenic, and cultural values of the affected community. The Department collaborates with local stakeholders to enhance existing transportation facilities to meet the goals and expectations of both the local community and the public-at-large.

The design of the transportation system should reflect community values and characteristics that may be achieved through enhancements that include art. The Transportation Art Program provides a way for the Department to permit enhancement of existing transportation facilities by local communities and artists.

Transportation Art may include graphic or sculptural artwork, either freestanding or placed on required engineering features (such as soundwalls, retaining walls, bridges, bridge abutments, bridge rails, or slope paving) that expresses something special about a community’s history, resources or character.
