Mohawk Valley Gateway Overlook Pedestrian Bridge

City of Amsterdam
Amsterdam, New York

Saratoga Associates was commissioned to create a comprehensive vision for the design of a pedestrian bridge over the Mohawk River, which will reconnect the two sides of the City of Amsterdam, New York.  The “Park over the River”, design theme extends a greenway over the bridge and will include extensive landscape plantings, viewing areas, gathering spaces for large functions and a variety of interpretive elements highlighting the history and culture of the City and its relationship to the Mohawk Valley Region. The bridge’s design vocabulary will incorporate interpretive architectural and landscape architectural elements to celebrate the story of Amsterdam.  The curvilinear bridge design establishes a artful ribbon that unifies diverse origins perspectives and places.
