Confluence Bridge
Basalt, CO

BMC staff organized the design efforts and managed the construction of Confluence Bridge in Basalt, Colorado. Once the primary access across the Roaring Fork River into downtown, it sat unutilized and decaying for at least a decade after it was decommissioned as a vehicular access corridor. A group of local citizens realized the potential of the bridge as a community plaza and pedestrian way, and spearheaded an impressive volunteer effort to make the bridge a vital community asset.  Design features include custom benches, planters, and lighted railings. This project was given a 2014 Community Sustainability Program Excellence Award from the ICMA which recognizes innovation and excellence in balancing community social, economic, environmental, and cultural needs.
