BridgePark on the horizon?

The Boulevard Bridge in Richmond.

For my Sunday T-D column I wrote about a “bridge/park,” the concept for which will soon be brought forward by a group of Richmonders. The idea was first written about in a T-D editorial back in September. More details emerged when I met with some of the principals last month: 1) The announcement will be made sometime in February; 2) a lot of work has already taken place, including floodplain and economic impact studies; 3) the project will be unique — there are bridge parks out there, but none that span a body of water.

There are a lot of questions to be asked — most importantly, how will it be paid for — but read about the concept and see what you think.
