Artistic Signal Switch Boxes

The switch boxes have been getting makeovers; they now feature musical artists. Stevie Ray Vaughn is where Mid Cites Blvd and Holiday Lane meet; Janis Joplin's in front of the Walgreen's on Blvd 26. Find the Beatles, Willie Nelson, Prince, and Frank Sinatra along Davis, and Selena is at the edge where you turn onto the 820 access road going toward Holiday off Blvd 26.

John Wayne Painted Switch Box

Although there are several painted switch boxes up and down Rufe Snow, the John Wayne one on the corner of Rufe Snow and Glenview really stands out!

Throughout North Richland Hills, Haltom City, and Watuaga you will find the switchgear boxes for traffic signals painted with various western heroes, local landmarks, etc. This one featuring John Wayne is on Rufe Snow Drive in North Richland Hills. I have also seen James Dean, the Lone Ranger (with his faithful companion), just to name a few.
