An important next step in the process is to identify the type of long span and movable span to design and build. Long span bridges come in different types, such as cable stayed, tied arch and through truss. Since there is a movable span associated with the preferred alternative, we’ll also consider different movable span types, such as vertical lift (like the Hawthorne and Steel bridges) and bascule (like the Burnside and Morrison bridges). From fall 2020 to summer 2021, we will work with the community, agencies and industry professionals to help select a bridge type.
- January/February 2021: Community input on a range of feasible bridge types and evaluation criteria
- May 2021: Community input on a recommended bridge type
