Second-Ranked Signature Bridge Concept Features Dancing Sculptures

Below is the second-ranked bid for the Signature Bridge submitted by the Fluor-Astaldi-MCM-led team, which lost by just half a point.

The design is said to inspired by dancers, with two 350-foot sculptures that would have been installed in front of the Performing Arts Center.

According to the proposal, the alignment of the bridge would be much further away from the Performing Arts Center than FDOT’s template, and would also result in more green space than the minimum set by FDOT. A local aesthetic committee, which included the Arsht Center’s director, ranked the proposal highest.

As with the top-ranked bid, the proposal includes a walkway with plazas and green space underneath.

The team is said to be preparing a formal bid protest.
