This coming from a guy in Detroit....

I worked on a project in Cleveland during the winter of 2009, and this city does not deserve a "walking" bridge of this magnitude! Cleveland gets two to three months of nice weather, and the other nine to ten months it sucks there! A project like this should be placed somewhere where there is an appropriate climate for it! Obama should have given the $$$ to the Cavs or Browns so their team(s) do not suck so bad next year...

Award Entry

Cleveland's new bridge provides unique counterpoint to the waterfront's landmarks 

The new movable footbridge will be located on Voinovich Park along Cleveland’s waterfront next to city landmarks like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum and the Great Lakes Science Center.

The unique, curved bridge consists of a single bascule non-symmetrical span that is supported by an elegant steel semi-arch. A pair of back stay cables will be used to open the bridge on a regular basis during part of the year. The bridge has a main span of 145 ft and a width of 12 ft.

The new link will complete a walking loop along the waterfront that will help activate the area and provide a secondary means of access to the adjacent park. The new iconic bridge will become a visually compelling addition to the cityscape marking its location from a distance with its sculptural quality.
