Replacing Belmont bridge is a community priority. While there’s a sense of urgency, there’s also an understanding of importance. The new bridge will need to accommodate the changing needs of our community, integrate with downtown and surrounding neighborhoods, and add lasting value to the City’s visual appeal. The current preliminary design is based on a successful public engagement process that has benefited from the involvement of the public, stakeholder groups, the project’s Steering and Technical Committees and all of you. Understanding community values and expectations as well as functional requirements has informed the current preliminary design for the NEW Belmont Bridge. Yet we still eagerly need your input!
