The government of the Distirct of Columbia has announced the finalists for the 11th Street Bridges Park project.
The bridge park project is a collaboration between the non-profit Building Bridges Across the River at THEARC (that's a moutful!) and the District government, and is supported by private donations. Construction of the park is expected to cost $25 million, of which the D.C. government has pledged $14.5 million. The total tab, including operating expenses, could approach $40 million. No clue if the design concepts will ever be approved, much less built.
