The Woodrow Wilson Bridge crosses the Potomac River and connects Maryland and the capitol. WSP's landscape architects provided planning, landscape architectural design review and design. The project focused on the replacement of an existing six-lane bridge on the Capital Beltway (I-95) with a new 12-lane structure, as well as the reconstruction of a park on the Potomac River. WSP participated in the Rosalie Island design development for the new Potomac River Waterfront Community Park. The design included a significant deckover structure above the Capital Beltway. WSP participated in the review of aesthetic and site restoration design elements throughout the 3.5-acre park on Rosalie Island and the adjacent I-295 and MD 210 interchanges. Upper Freehold Historic Farmland Byway Allentown Borough, N.J. The Upper Freehold Historic Farmland Byway, located in Allentown Borough and Upper Freehold Township, N.J., was designated as a state scenic byway in 2006. This byway, 31.5 miles in length, captures the unique agricultural landscapes, history and cultural traditions of the southwestern "panhandle" of Monmouth County. Under the direction of a WSP landscape architect, the scope of services for WSP included seven CMC meetings, two public workshops and meetings with county and township planning and engineering staffs. The result of the 18-month process is the Corridor Management Plan that will guide the Upper Freehold Historic Farmland Byway's preservation for future generations. The plan defines a comprehensive set of management strategies for landscape conservation. WSP brings together approximately 43,600 talented people, based in 550 offices, across 40 countries. WSP's landscape architects have the technical knowledge and creative skills to implement functional, interesting and scenic green spaces that can be enjoyed by all. Their landscape architectural services include planning, conceptual design, preliminary design, final design, services during construction and project management on projects that can range from the preparation of aesthetic guidelines, to initial tree/vegetation inventories, to streetscapes, plazas and more.
