Winners announced for Four Mile Run Bridge Competition

Winners announced for Four Mile Run Bridge Competition

The Four Mile Run Bridge Competition has announced its winning entries, awarding Team Arup/Grimshaw/Scape with the First Prize.

For years, Northern Virginia’s Four Mile Run has functioned as a flood control channel and a border between the City of Alexandria and Arlington County. More recently, growing community interest in revitalizing and celebrating the Run has resulted in the Four Mile Run Restoration Master Plan. The plan outlines a broad range of ambitious, feasible goals to restore the ecology of the Run while re-establishing it as a cherished park space and a means of stitching together communities.

The winning team was chosen based on the strength of their professional skills and the potential for their conceptual design to become an icon for the Four Mile Run and its surrounding community.
