CLEVELAND — Bridge Avenue in the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood on Cleveland's West Side is a little more colorful thanks to a fun project by a community group known as the Bridge Brigade.

Members of the group painted electric poles on Bridge Avenue between 48th and 65th streets in vibrant colors, turning the brown wooden poles into dazzling rainbow displays.

The Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization said in a Facebook post that the Bridge Brigade planned, designed, fundraised and executed the entire beautification project.

According to Caitlin Shea, who manages a bakery in the neighborhood, Andria Loczi attended over a dozen meetings at city hall, got donations from Sherwin Williams, and convinced local artists Garrett Weider and Hector Vega to help with the endeavor.
