|Houston Parks Director Joe Turner and his vision: The Rosemont Bridge!|
The Insite’s hat goes off to the city of Houston Park’s director Joe Turner. He had a plan a few years ago to build a bridge over the bayou and now that dream is being realized.
You’re getting a preview of the great architecture that will grace our city for years to come.
It’s still not open to the public yet because the finishing touches are being put on – Rosemont Bridge.
Turner says he’s excited to finally unveil the project that cost $5.5 million dollars and makes use of old rail road lines.
The bridge, which broke ground a year ago, was financed through funds from the Memorial Heights TIRZ.
The steel and concrete structure seems to crawl and float over Buffalo Bayou Park near Studemont and Allen Parkway.
The view of downtown Houston from the site is amazing. You actually have to see it for yourself.
Rosemont Bridge will act as a hike and bike trail for Houstonians.
The Insite had the honor of getting an advance look before it opens to you – the public on March 26th!
