Pedestrian bridge ideas: visionaries submit designs for an S-B foot bridge to Nlcog's J. Kent Rogers
Project SB - Pedestrian Bridge Design Competition
The North La Council of Governments (NLCOG) and the Project SB Steering Committee is sponsoring a step to bridge the divide between the two communities of Shreveport and Bossier City with the Pedestrian Bridge Design Competition.
This competition will focus on generating ideas and concepts for the proposed bridge to connect the two riverfront districts. Everyone -- designers, planners, architects, students and the general public -- is encouraged to participate and submit their ideas, plans, and designs to NLCOG. The contest runs through September 30, 2006 and will award cash prizes for first and second place in categories for professionals, students, and the general public.
For more information about the Pedestrian Bridge Design Competition, there are helpful links at http://nwlainfo.com.
If I could show you the witty and charming illustration of pedestrian bridge possibilities developed for the Shreveport Times by graphic artist David Wright and published Sun, June 25, you would surely want to enter. I plan to enter and will consider joining force fields with you if you need a bloggy visionista.
