Mayor Tom Henry was presented with an award Friday for the design of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge. It was given to him by the firm that designed it.
DLZ Indiana has won numerous awards for the iconic structure that forms the gateway into downtown Fort Wayne along Clinton Street from the north.
The bridge has won awards from the American Council of Engineering Companies, the Indiana Partnership for Transportation Quality and the American Society of Landscape Architects.
DLZ officials presented Henry with a display showing the certificate for the latter award and a striking photo of the bridge taken the night it was dedicated.
This weekend, the light display on the bridge will feature red, white and blue patterns to celebrate the 50th anniversary of King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
