This bridge acts much more as a landmark than a means of passage. The boardwalk will be combined with sculptures, gardens, busker terraces, a sun deck, outdoor seating and a built in café.

The bridge will preserve and incorporate existing and planned green space along the river as well as with the existing riverwalk, including the perennial WaterFire events held along the Providence River as well as other activities such as on shore fishing activities, local street vendors, buskers, and street entertainment.
