TheWashCycle: 11th Street Recreation Bridge

One of the illustrations of the 11th Street Bridge by Ed Estes, has received a lot of attention and is being blogged on several popular sites in Washington, DC. Ed’s conceptual designs and illustrations are part of the 11th Street Recreation Bridge Potential Study published by the DC Office of Planning.

I called it! Sort of. Back in 2009 when DDOT held a presser to start work on the 11th Street Bridge I wrote When I asked about the upstream span and the possibility of repurposing it, I was told that DDOT had not ruled that out yet. That would be a great idea. DC would save the cost of demolition and could put that towards maintenance – which would be less without car traffic. Then they could give it the High Line treatment, creating a space with plantings, art etc.. And cyclists could use that part too.
