Broad in scope, the White Paper outlines the long-term benefits of the bridge, how it is consistent with current trends in urban design, the many individuals and groups that support the bridge, along with possible sources of funding.

Transportation Advocates of Howard County Solicit Public Input

We’re pleased to announce that the feasibility study (for Bridge Columbia) will be moving forward.
This is a project that needs to come to life. We have great people involved. Columbia deserves this bridge. Let’s make this happen.
Every bridge is a statement. Your plans say so much about Columbia – united, progressive, walkable and open.
Let’s support James Rouse’s original plan of an interconnected community. Rt. 29 divides our city and isolates the different villages.
My family and I will benefit greatly from the Bridge Columbia Project.
There is no question that the existing bridge is underutilized due to inconvenience and safety issues. . . What a difference it would make for all of Columbia to follow through with Bridge Columbia’s vision.
This would really enhance green transportation in Columbia and be a wonderful amenity.
I heard about the initiative to upgrade the existing pedestrian bridge to accommodate transit, pedestrian, and bike traffic. I am strongly if favor of this project.
This is a great effort that, if successful, could provide a springboard for other community connection initiatives throughout Howard County.
I’d do anything to update that bridge. This sounds like a FINE PLAN.
