Public Workshop Kicks off Downtown Bridge Design Contest

The public workshop will be held Oct. 2 in Roseville's Royer Park.

, residents will have an input on the design of the Downtown Bridge Project.

The City of Roseville released the following information:

What do the Riverside and Historic Old Town Streetscape Projects, the Town Square, and Sammy’s Rockin’ Island Bar and Grill all have in common? Well, they are all located in Downtown Roseville and each project has been directly influenced by community input.

You have another chance to get involved in your downtown. On Tuesday October 2, the City of Roseville is inviting you to participate in the design of two new pedestrian bridges and re-use of the existing Rube Nelson "Icehouse" Bridge across Dry Creek.

“The bridges are intended to create the pedestrian and bicycle friendly environment envisioned in the Downtown Specific Plan,” said Roseville Alternative Transportation Analyst Michael Dour. “The public input we receive at the workshop is a critical part of the community-based design process.”

The public workshop will take place on Tuesday, October 2, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. at the Children's Art Center in Royer Park, 190 Park Drive.

Over the past decade, the residents of Roseville have been actively involved in the creation of a vision for Downtown Roseville and the development of the Downtown Roseville Specific Plan. Beyond the larger vision, the specific elements of every public improvement project in Downtown Roseville have been established through the active participation of Roseville residents, business owners, and property owners.

Tuesday’s workshop kicks off a competition to select the designer for the Downtown Bridge Project. The workshop will feature brief presentations as well as an opportunity for you to comment on, or discuss, the three pedestrian bridges destined to connect Royer Park and Downtown Roseville. Your input will be used by three prospective design teams as they help bring the Downtown vision to life. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the design competition and to influence this important Downtown project.

Included in this project are the replacement of the bridge formerly located near the Downtown Library; an Oak Street Class I Bridge/Bike Trail extension near the Veterans Hall; and a new Downtown Bridge that will serve as the centerpiece pedestrian element between Royer Park and Oak Street in Downtown Roseville.
