On Monday, October 5, weather permitting, the Charley Fox Memorial Overpass Public Artwork, located at the Hale Street and Trafalgar Street roundabout, will be temporarily removed to allow for repairs. The artwork was damaged during a heavy rain and wind storm at the end of August.
The artwork will be carefully transferred to an secure indoor facility where repairs will be completed. It is expected to be returned to the roundabout in early November. The roundabout will remain open while the monument is removed on Monday.
The artwork, created by artists Daniel Castillo and Jerry Vrabec, was erected in the centre of the Charley Fox Memorial Overpass at Hale and Trafalgar/CN Overpass in the fall of 2011. Part of the City of London Public Art collection, the memorial is a metal piece that soars 36 feet in the air, serving as a lasting tribute to all veterans and recognizing all branches of the Canadian military forces.
