Ideas unveiled for new Napa River bridge
TY Lin International's initial designs for the replacement of a bridge over California's Napa River have been put on display. Seven historic and contemporary concepts were unveiled by the City of Napa, including arch and cable-stayed structures. The existing three span, 48m-long bridge is on the US national register of historic places but needs to be replaced as part of a flood protection scheme as it impedes water flows and is structurally deficient. Construction is due to begin next year.
