In 2009 the City of Alexandria and Arlington County, in partnership with NVRC and Virginia Tech, conducted a Pedestrian Cyclist Bridge Competition. The original 2009 FMR Ped/Cyclist Bridge Competition can be viewed at http://www.4milerun.org.
Since the design competition, Arlington, Alexandria, NVRC and the Virginia Department of Transportation worked to develop the Scope of Services for the design and engineering. The team of Olin/Buro Happold/Explorations Architecture/ L’Observatoire International was chosen to design the bridge. A presentation of their work and the competition renderings of their concept can be viewed at http://www.novaregion.org/DocumentCenter/View/10460.
Design is underway. Updates on the completion of the design will be included in the Joint Task Force meetings and on this page.
