Well, it’s about time.

This ugly, 16-foot-high corrugated aluminum Department of Transportation fence on Front Street will finally get a facelift thanks to a competition being run by the DUMBO Improvement District.

The local civic organization and the city agency are looking for an artist to create a mural to hide the eyesore. The fence was erected to hide another eyesore, a DOT equipment yard located under the bridge.

The Improvement District is offering $9,000 to the artist who designs the winning proposal.

The deadline for proposals is Nov. 28. For information, call (718) 237-8700 or visit
