The Springbrook Bridge is located at the intersection of Faraday and Darwin. It is a landmark that students and families paint for many occasions. You can usually see it painted up for a birthday, the Maryville vs Alcoa football game, or used as a memorial for the loss of a loved one.
Backstory and Context
The Springbrook Bridge was originally a normal bridge, and it was considered vandalism to paint on it. Now, it is painted about every week for birthdays, sports events, memorials, and more. The bridge can stay painted from anywhere around a month to just overnight. You can also find areas around the bridge with paint such as the sidewalks, the road, poles, and the post of the stop sign. Near the bridge you can find the First United Methodist Church, the Alcoa Middle school, the Alcoa Intermediate school, Springbrook Pool, and Springbrook Park. You will pass it if you follow the Maryville-Alcoa Greenway.
