Downtown Bridges design competition public workshop set for October 2 | Community
Roseville – The City of Roseville is hosting a public workshop to kick off a competition to select the designer for the Downtown Bridge Project on October 2 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Royer Park Children’s Art Center located at 190 Park Drive. The Downtown Bridge Project includes the design of two new bridges and re-use of the existing Rube Nelson “Icehouse” Bridge across Dry Creek. These bridges are integral to creating the pedestrian and bicycle friendly environment envisioned in the Downtown Specific Plan.
The workshop will feature brief presentations by Mike Dour, the City’s Alternative Transportation Analyst, who will discuss the Downtown Specific Plan, the bridges and the design competition process and Matt Salveson, assistant professor of civil engineering at California State University, Sacramento, who will provide an overview of bridge design considerations. The workshop is an open house format with opportunities for the public to view illustrations, meet the design teams, and provide ideas and feedback on each bridge. The input will be used by prospective design teams.
