Computation of fundamental groups of Galois covers recently led to the construction and analysis of Coxeter covers of the symmetric groups [L. H. Rowen, M. Teicher and U. Vishne, Coxeter covers of the symmetric groups, J. Group Theory 8 (2005) 139169]. In this paper we consider analog covers of Artin's braid groups, and completely describe the induced geometric extensions of the braid group.
