Sometimes obsolete infrastructure can become a new asset. That’s Washington, D.C.’s plan for an unneeded highway bridge over the Anacostia River. The 11th Street Bridge Park, set for construction starting in 2021, will bring green and hard-surface open space, event venues, and new access to the river itself to the southeast sector of the District of Columbia.

In this podcast, Scott Kratz, Director of the project, gives us the details of this new urban feature.
