New murals coming to Southwest viaducts; feedback wanted

Residents of District 6 – Southwest Detroit – are asked to give feedback to muralists and the City of Detroit’s General Services Department on the creation of murals of three of the most trafficked viaducts in the area.

The Springwells Avenue viaduct on Springwells Avenue just off I-75, the West Vernor Highway viaduct between Livernois Avenue and Waterman Street and the Livernois Avenue viaduct between Toledo and John Kronk streets were chosen as canvases for local artists to not only beautify the spaces, but also bridge communities.
