Solution

The City of Fort Pierre’s oldest and most valuable resource is the Missouri River. With this in mind, the Future Fort Pierre initiative was created to bring new and enhanced economic, recreational, arts, and entertainment opportunities to Fort Pierre along the river. ISG was hired by the City to lead an efficient, multi-day design charrette with key local stakeholders to conceptualize a community project that would coincide with the reconstruction of Lieutenant Commander John Waldron Bridge which spans the Missouri River. As a result of the process, ISG produced several conceptual drawings for a new bridge plaza, trailhead, walking path, overlook pier and several art installations that exemplify Fort Pierre’s rich history. Following the development of the vision plan, ISG was again hired by the City to do construction drawings for the Bridge Plaza.

These improvements are estimated to cost around $600,000 and will be constructed in 2021.
