Partner Event: Design Competition—Crook Point Bascule Bridge Reuse

We are excited to pass along a Call for Design Ideas for the Crook Point Bascule Bridge—a steel railway drawbridge that once connected Providence’s Fox Point neighborhood to the City of East Providence across the Seekonk River. The bridge–which is currently unused and has remained fixed in an upright position since 1976–serves as a symbol of Providence’s industrial past and a sculptural element of the city’s skyline. The Providence Redevelopment Agency and City of Providence now seek exciting design ideas for reuse of the Crook Point Bridge structure.
