Step 3: Bridge Alternatives
AAT (Area Advisory Team), BSMT (Bi-State Management Team), RAC (Regional Advisory Committee)
In Step Three of the Bridge Type Selection Process, the architects and engineers for the bridge design teams developed detailed renderings of design alternatives for each new bridge location, based on the design guidelines and concept preferences established in Steps One and Two.
The Area Advisory Teams (AAT) and Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) provided input on the bridge type alternatives through the use of preference polling similar to the process used in Step Two.
Input from all the advisory teams was used throughout Step Three to refine the draft alternatives. Following review and approval by the Bi-State Management Team, the refined alternatives were shown to the public at the Step Three Open Houses. Open house attendees provided feedback and asked questions.
Following the Step Three Open Houses, the design teams developed a set of bridge type alternatives for evaluation and refinement in Step Four - the final phase of the Bridge Type Selection Process.
