    What is a park cap? Does it exist in other places? I just can’t see anyone wanting to hang out in a park which is over a loud, polluting highway.

    A massive concrete slab as a floor can do a pretty good job blocking noise and exhaust.

    I like the Dallas version referred to by geoyui, because people are not near to the edge of the bridge overlooking the highway.

    In the Long street picture, it appears that users of the park will be very close to the edge of the bridge which would allow noise and exhaust to rise into the park.

    Didn’t I see that Long will be closed for most of the coming week?

    The sign out there says 24th-28th.

    Thought it was something like that. Thanks.

    Bridge or Garden Wall?

    Actually a little bit of both on the Long Street Bridge. A series of decorative trellises are being installed to accent the cultural wall.

    This trellis is being installed on the south side of the Long Street Bridge. The cultural wall artwork will be installed later and will cover the white panels seen here.

    Broken image link?

    In the previous post? I see an image there. Perhaps your corporate proxy server is filtering out that site?

    Thanks, I can see both now. It was showing up before as the generic ‘CU logo box’ placeholder image.

    Weird. Their newsletter seemed to be having some weird issues going on. Or maybe a Constant Contact image issue. Both are displaying ok for me.

    Noticed that trees are being planted on the north side of the Long Street bridge today. Starting to look much nicer.

    Long Street Cultural Wall Unveiled
    July 11, 2014 7:15 am – Walker Evans

    The unveiling of the Long Street Cultural Wall yesterday evening signaled the completion of the first phase of ODOT’s Columbus Crossroads project, which will eventually untangle the 70/71 split when all phases are finished. Phase one began in September 2011, which included the rebuilding of the 670/71 interchange adjacent to Fort Hayes, as well as the demolition and reconstruction of the Spring Street and Long Street bridges over I-71 between Downtown Columbus and The Near East Side.
