How to Reuse a Floating Bridge

Seattle's 520 Floating Bridge
The Washington State DOT has required that the design-build team for a new bridge must reuse or recycle the existing bridge in a sustainable way. An international design ideas competition has been born of this challenge. Favorite options for reusing the existing pontoons have included floating docks, breakwaters, and piers. It's likely that the winner of the ideas competition will be more creative.

Results of the competition are to be announced live at the 2012 Seattle Design Festival and subsequently posted online. Log on to view the winning design. Did you have a better idea? What other design options come to mind? Please share your comments here.
