remembrance garden, Staging Concepts Works on 35W Bridge Memorial

Staging Concepts is proud to have helped complete the Remembrance Garden, a memorial located across from Gold Medal Park, which was dedicated August 1, 2011 to mark the four-year anniversary of the 35W bridge collapse.

The monument features 13 black steel pillars, each 10.5-feet tall, with glass panel fronts each etched with the name of a person who died when the bridge fell into the Mississippi River in 2007. The panels will be illuminated by blue LED lighting at night. The pillars, lighting and glass were manufactured by Staging Concepts.

Additional features include a stone water wall inscribed with the names of everyone who was on the bridge but survived and a path leading from the wall to an observation deck on the bluff overlooking the river and the new I-35W bridge.

Staging Concepts worked with landscape architectural firm Oslund and Associates through project design phases, and general contractor McGough Construction for the installation of the columns.
