VOTE: City seeks input on bridge designs

Lebanon — City of Lebanon Mayor Huck Lewis is seeking public input to decide which agricultural design to display on the new eye-catching Ind. 39 bridge over Interstate 65.

The bridge’s design and the agricultural theme were both things that came out of the gateway bridge study, Lewis said, which was held a little more than a year ago and included input from several public meetings. With that input, architectural firm Rundell Ernstberger Associates and engineering firm USI have developed four different designs, one of which will be featured on translucent panels spanning the length of the bridge. The design on the panels will be seen from northbound and southbound I-65.

The four designs are: a blue and green corn stalk design, an orange and yellow soybean leaf design, a rolling fields design, and a more modern, biotechnology design.

“We’re trying to keep an agricultural feel, our agriculture heritage,” Lewis said. “I really like the way they look. It’s going to be really neat.”

The panels will be curved inward slightly and will be back-lit. There will also be a light on each of the two towers on the bridge.

“It will show up very clearly at night,” Lewis said. “We wanted something that really pops.”
