Editorial: The Peace Bridge plaza design

Today's top editorial applauds the latest Peace Bridge expansion project plaza design for routing traffic around Front Park instead of through it. That reconnects the Prospect Hill historic district to the park, and allows creation of a city gateway -- an Olmsted-like traffic circle that takes the bridge's city traffic to Niagara Street. Designers pledge good architecture and landscaping in later design stages.

That won't end the controversy. The News has previously posted both the plaza plan and the design concepts for the bridge itself, so you can reach your own conclusions.

The bridge designs, as seen from a planned configuration of the Riverwalk, are in our "Inside The News" blog  here.

The plaza design is here.
