PROVIDENCE – Curious about the design of a new pedestrian bridge slated to replace the former Interstate 195 bridge over the Providence River? The city of Providence is offering a peek this month at the finalists for the job.

The designs by the 11 finalists are available for perusing on the third floor of Providence City Hall. A selection committee of local architects, neighborhood residents, representatives from local universities, business owners, and state and city officials picked the pool from a crop of 47.

The firms behind the 11 designs hail from six states, including Rhode Island, as well as England and France.

A jury of officials and locals are expected to choose a final design and have solicited public feedback, either by leaving comments at City Hall or on the city’s website.

The bridge is expected to be completed sometime in 2013 and link the Fox Point Neighborhood to the Jewelry District.

The finalists on display at City Hall include:

  • !melk/Balmond Studio/Robert Silman Associates (New York City).
  • Endres Ware (Berkeley, Calif.).
  • H2L2/Arup (Philadelphia).
  • inFORM studio/Buro Happold (New York City).
  • La Dallman Architects (Milwaukee).
  • McDowell + Benedetti Architects LLP (London).
  • RFR (Paris).
  • Rosales + Partners/Schlaich Bergermann and Partner (Boston).
