The Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge, which opened to the public on August 2nd 2017, has been named the APWA Oregon Chapter Project of the Year in the category Structures-$5 Million to under $25 Million. This project is the culmination of years of planning and effort by the City of Salem and Salem’s Urban Renewal Agency. The bridge was designed by OBEC Consulting Engineers. GreenWorks had the pleasure of developing a conceptual framework that integrated existing park features, such as the “Eco Earth” art globe, with new terraced seatwalls and complemented accent plantings. The bridge now serves as a link between downtown Salem and Minto-Brown Island Park, a 1,400 acre green space. It is estimated that 2,000 people use the bridge each day.
We would like to thank OBEC Consulting Engineers, the City of Salem, and DKS Associates for their partnership on this project.
