Peace Horizons Bridge

This petition had 22 supporters

The Peace Horizons Bridge is a cable stay design with its towers 365 feet high center bearing its 2,000 feet long six lane road deck, giving drivers an unobstructed view and is bird friendly.

Support the building of the Peace Horizons Bridge to replace the old peace bridge that crosses the mouth of Niagara River, connecting the USA and Canada.

Around July 2010 began building a prototype bridge from wood in a friend's small garage, took me around eight months to build the 36 foot prototype.

Segmental bridge = Wikipedia. “As its name implies, a segmental bridge is a bridge built in short sections (called segments), i.e., one piece at a time, as opposed to traditional methods that build a bridge in very large sections. The bridge is made of concrete that is either cast-in-place (constructed fully in its final location) or precast concrete (built at another location and then transported to their final location for placement in the full structure).” “These bridges are very economical for long spans (over 100 meters), especially when access to the construction site is restricted. They are also chosen for their aesthetic appeal.”

The peace horizons signature bridge design would be bird friendly at  365 feet in height would be 225 feet shorter, compared to Christan menn design that was 590 feet high.

590 feet was to high of a height for the area base solely on aesthetics, not even considering the bird problem.

I designed my signature bridge design many years previous to menn's  design, figured would be more aesthetically appealing with keeping with the natural height of the surrounding terrain.

I sense there is the old problem the tendency for a region thinking they must hire someone out of town, to find a solution. Instead there are solutions homegrown, who know the area best and its people. This has been the heart of the resurgence of Buffalo.

If you can sign my petition, much appreciated.

The signature peace horizons bridge would be a symbol of the cleaning up and renewing of our waterfront. Western New York shores lifted up as bright shinning stars, where others in the world will take notice.
