THE BRIDGE PROJECT REPORT 2009
Abstract: On September 25-26, 2009, the vacant lower level of Cleveland's Detroit-Superior bridge was opened to the public attracting nearly 8,000 visitors over the two day event. As part of the Bridge Project, graduate students from Kent State University's Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative and students from Villa Angela - St. Joseph High School designed and built temporary interventions along the bridge using the event's attendees as "research subjects". This report documents the students' findings on the public's use of the temporary enhancements and presents suggestions for future improvements needed to transform this underused infrastructural relic into an accommodating community asset.
