Last year we began pre-construction work on the 11th Street Bridge Park in collaboration with our wonderful partners at the District Department of Transportation (DDOT.) This important step includes inspecting the old freeway piers which will support the future Bridge Park, defining right of way and the permitting process (this is the nation’s capital so lots of agencies to talk to!) and working with the community and our fabulous architectural and design team OMA + OLIN to refine the park’s design.
We just completed pier inspection above and below the water line (scuba diving in the Anacostia anyone?) and wanted to share some “action shots” – see below. We are so excited to move forward building this new civic space in the nation’s capital!
