PROJECT INFO

CDR teamed up with engineering firm, Johnson, Mirmiran, and Thompson on this 645’ bridge replacement project that crosses over New York Avenue, as well as ten railroad tracks owned by Amtrak and CSXT Railroad Facilities. CDR design goal was to create aesthetics with a patriotic theme appropriate for this gateway bridge into Washington, D.C. For commuters walking or biking across the bridge, stars run along the parapet walls, decorative iron fencing lines the bridge, and brick medians offer safer travel between lanes of traffic. Bronze eagles perch atop the entry columns as travelers drive under or across the bridge. More stars accentuate the parapet as drivers pass under the bridge.
