Director of Long Range Planning Bonnie Nickerson said the current plans adhere closely to the original concept. The number of seating elements which contain lighting elements has been increased. Stairs have been added to provide access to the two east-side piers. To keep overall costs under control, the event space on the lower level has been eliminated, and the square footage of the bridge deck has been trimmed.
The presentation included renderings of the interconnections with the east and west side parks and plan and elevation views of the bridge. See the complete update here.
The new bridge will be the key link between the East Side and the Jewelry District for CiTY WALK on its route between India Point Park and Roger Williams Park. For a look at how the new bridge fits into CiTY WALK's plan for connecting Providence, click here.
