Landmark nominations attempt to influence new bridge

The Gillota Building and the remnants of the historic Central Viaduct, immediately south of the east approach to the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge, are being touted for designation as City landmarks, in an attempt to influence the routing and design of the proposed new I-90 bridge over the Cuyahoga. (Tom Breckenridge. "Structure in way of new bridge gets boost." Plain Dealer. Friday, April 28, 2006. Page B-3.) In 2002, we used the roof of the Gillota Building as a site for a panoramic photo matching another one taken from there around 1918 to display the amazing contrast in how Cleveland's downtown has changed in 90 years.

P.S. Eco-City Cleveland's new Green City Blue Lake site discusses the planning of the new bridge and lists the names of the committee and its charge.
