The BP Foundation, through its commitment to education is partnering with DDRA by granting $100,000 to the Gateway Pedestrian Bridge in downtown Decatur. This project is unique in that the Design and Engineering professionals working on it will partner with the Decatur City Schools to involve Austin High School engineering students in the design process through the curriculum of their engineering program.
