When the construction of an extension to the Cape Cod Rail Trail bike path was constructed, R.J. Forbes Painting was contracted to prep and apply an anti-graffiti coating on the new bridge abutments to protect the surfaces from permanent graffiti damage. The original graffiti vandalism was abrasive blasted off the concrete walls and then coated with an anti-graffiti coating to prevent the walls from being vandalized again in the future. The result was a nice clean look that brought satisfaction and pride back to our clients and their community.
