VISIONS FOR THE NORTH AVENUE BRIDGE
A group of Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) students have produced some visual examples of ways to make the bridge connecting Station North and Reservoir Hill more interesting and attractive. This creative effort by the MICA students is part of the West North Avenue Streetscape project, and the chosen design may be implemented in the years to come. At our April Community Meeting, we will be displaying a few examples of their work. We hope you are able to attend, take a look, and let us know what you think.
