‘Food Bridge’ wins design contest for old 520 floating bridge
Another Great Bridge Reuse contest!
A design for parks and gardens on the South Park neighborhood’s waterfront won the international competition to create a use for the old 520 floating bridge pontoons, according to the competition’s Facebook page. The “Food Bridge” would be set afloat along the Duwamish River.
Update 9-28: “The plan is currently to decommission the existing bridge, which most likely involves deconstructing it into smaller pieces so it can be removed from the project limits. We have not yet determined if or how the pieces could be reused, but will consider the ideas which came out of the contest,” Britt Thorson wrote on behalf of Kiewit/General/Manson, the company building the new 520 bridge.
