The city of Frederick was originally laid out along Carroll Creek. Over the years this creek flooded and after severe flooding in the 1970's, the city began planning for a flood control project and redevelopment of the damaged areas along the creek. The flood control project consisted of large underground conduits for excess floodwater and a park along the creek. One highlight of the plan was a community bridge to replace the old Carroll Street Bridge over the creek. The view above is the east side of the bridge. Below is a shot of the bridge where it meets an old building, now the Delaplaine arts center.
The bridge is concrete with a painted mural looking like a stone bridge with various elements of community life painted on the stone blocks. Below are some of the symbols included in the mural. For more information on the bridge see its web site. I have previously posted other photos on my blogs here Bridges Between, a view from the bridge and the fountain.
