ohio river bridge, east end crossing
In collaboration with the design-build team that includes Walsh Construction, Jacobs, IBT Engineers, and Vinci Grands Projet, MacDonald Architects is currently providing architectural design services for the East End Crossing over the Ohio River. Set amongst a rural context, the East End Bridge focuses on two cable stayed towers and an extensive weaving of greenways and interchanges between Utica, Indiana and Prospect, Kentucky.
The bridge design honors the local historic and cultural context, borrows from local building traditions where appropriate, and strikes a modern, efficient aesthetic tone. The resulting aesthetics through an attention to form, scale, and detail create an understated architectural symbol for the community that strives to maximize natural views of the river and its surroundings. Future generations will appreciate the East End Bridge’s modern levels of safety, efficiency, and durability, as they continue to enjoy the natural beauty of this unique Ohio River region.
