Lake Woodbine Bridge DRAFT rendering 2.18.22

The Lake-Woodbine Bridge design displayed here will be presented to the Historic Preservation Commission in March. The bridge design is draft and subject to change.

This project is in the preliminary development stage and no reports or detailed engineering analyses have been developed beyond the Bridge Condition Report are currently available. The project will require the issuance of a Certificate of Appropriateness from the City’s Historic Preservation Commission. Commission review of a proposed design is tentatively scheduled for March 16, 2022. Additional community outreach will occur prior to any construction activities.
