The primary component of the Stitch is a “cap” over the Downtown Connector. Like the existing bridges in this area, the cap will span the entire Interstate, creating a seamless connection between both sides. This cap will hold the various park elements, including greenspace, trees, plants, paths, art, and more. There are a number of support systems that should be considered for highway capping projects, such as fire, life-safety, monitoring, and ventilation systems. There are an estimated 66 parks and other structures in the U.S. that currently cap the space over a highway.
