Here’s a quick look at some of the options being looked at now for the proposed Providence River Pedestrian Bridge which will be built at the area where Route 195 currently crosses the river. Thoughts?
Some things to think about; since the plan is to keep the existing piers below the water level, there is actually a large area upon which things can be built. View platforms, small structures for shops, tie ups for boats… How should the bridge accommodate pedestrians and bikes, all together, separate lanes..? Are there opportunities for public art installations to be incorporated into the structure? Should it be sleek and modern, or have a more historic/classic look?
