We need your help! A community-driven effort is currently underway to re-open the lower level of the Detroit-Superior Bridge for year-round use as a performance venue and bicycle/pedestrian connection. What can you do?
Go to bridgevote.com to cast your vote for "The Cleveland Bridge Project" in the This Place Matters Community Challenge. Then, ask everyone you know to vote too.
The Detroit-Superior Bridge (also known as the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge) is one of the most prominent features of Cleveland’s urban landscape. The upper level of the bridge was designed for vehicular traffic and remains one of the most heavily used thoroughfares in the city. The lower level was designed for streetcars, but has been largely vacant since 1954 when streetcar service was discontinued. The lower level is currently open to the public just a few days each year. Thousands of people experienced this remarkable space when it was open for the Ingenuity Fest in September 2009 and 2010.
With your help, we can win this challenge and secure $25,000 to improve the lower level of the bridge. Please vote today!
