Here are some of the documents we used in the community workshop on Monday, July 1. We asked artists and community members to think about what types of art or materials could be built into the steel “ribs” rising up on either side of the bridge. Color could be added as well. What do you think??
<< View from south side of creek (river on the left)
<< Ribs behind bench (with dimensions)
<< Another perspective (with dimensions)
<< Ribs behind guardrail
Have ideas you’d like to share?? Contact Luke Perry.
Big thanks to Will Gentry and his geo-tech team for coming to the site and drilling yesterday! We hit rock around 18 feet — now we have the info we need to move forward with installing the footers for our bridge.
We got some great feedback from the community this weekend — at our event by the river Friday night and then at the Grant/Southside Community Day on Saturday. Thanks to everyone who came and shared ideas!
Come down to the site (30 Riverside Drive – under the Haywood Bridge) from 5-7pm TONIGHT! It’s just down the street from the RiverLink’s RiverMUSIC, happening from 5-10pm.
We need your input on our design before the final drawings are submitted!

It’s been a crazy, productive week! With the feedback on our benches from last Friday’s meeting with Green Opportunities (GO!) and the weekend Studio Stroll, we were able to move forward quickly with design. We built a full-scale mock-up of a section of the bridge and continued to figure out details of the design through drawings and models. We are working hard to complete permit drawings for submittal next week. Big thanks to Shawn Oldham at the metal shop, engineer Medlock and architect Mitchel Sorin who provided professional reviews!
