Artistic signal cabinets

This idea from Boise could very well add some character to signal cabinets in the CdA area...

Photo and information from Downtown Boise Association Facebook page and KBOI.

The Downtown Boise Association received a grant from the Mayor’s Neighborhood Reinvestment Program to commission five Idaho artists to design five different murals for the cabinet controller boxes in Downtown Boise. Cabinet Controller boxes are located at intersections to control the traffic signals.

The program in association with Ada County Highway District and the City of Boise’s Art & History Department that brings public art to the street level is a pilot project to decrease graffiti and increase the unique character of downtown. This project is a model project and would pave the way for more Cabinet Controller boxes at prominent intersections to be made into artwork in the future.


  1. Good idea.. how about a map on one side showing five or six blocks in all directions???
