Comments: "Goal is to commission an artist/designer to work with the engineering/landscape architecture project team to design artistic pedestrian bridges and gateways for the 1.75-mile linear trail corridor. The project is expected to engage and celebrate the community’s history, diverse cultures and ecology. The selected artist/artist team will work with the engineering/landscape architecture team, the community and other partners to incorporate thematic elements in the actual design of bridges and gateways. The final design is funded and underway with a phased approach and quick timeline. The selected artist/artist team should be willing and able to immediately begin working with the Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust and the engineering/landscape architecture team."
