Catamount Arts recently identified the artist tasked with enhancing the ‘honking tunnel’ area

. ST. JOHNSBURY — Catamount Arts recently identified the artist tasked with enhancing the ‘honking tunnel’ area that will serve as the downtown gateway from the Three Rivers Bike Path. “Burlington artist Clay Mohrman, founder of sculptural lighting design firm Clay Mohr Lighting, has been selected to design and build a new public art project to bring light and vibrancy to the area known locally as the honking tunnel,” noted information from Catamount Arts. The tunnel is an underpass that allows for rail traffic to pass on the top. The passageway links traffic from Bay Street and the area along the Passumpsic River with the Depot Square area of downtown St. Johnsbury. The roadway within the tunnel is only large enough for one vehicle at a time, requiring motortists arriving at either end to honk their vehicle horns as a warning, giving the tunnel its name.
