Metroplan announces design competition

WANTED: Exciting replacement from current Broadway Bridge.
  • WANTED: Exciting replacement for current Broadway Bridge.

Metroplan today announced a bridge design competition in hopes of encouraging more community interest in producing a landmark design for a planned Broadway Bridge replacement. Community interest is required because community tax money will be required to pay for the additional cost of a high-concept bridge over what's likely possible with the $45 million the state Highway and Transportation Department is willing to spend on the replacement span.

Here's the Metroplan release.

Here's the new website, which includes a page of designer bridges built elsewhere in the world.
