Your chance to vote for bridge into Charlotte

The bridge will be a big piece of the project and will be a gateway to the Queen City.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The City of Charlotte is planning to build a new bridge over I-85 and the city wants you to help choose the design.

From now until the end of June, anyone can vote for one of four possible designs for the bridge listed on the city's webpage.

The four designs range from one with what appears to be a tree to two with more geometric patterns and one that is very simple with the work "Charlotte" carved into the stone.

Project Manager Dan Leaver said the city wants the bridge to be a gateway to the city because it will be the first thing people see driving south on I-85.

NBC Charlotte showed pictures of the plans to a number of shoppers today at the Park Road Shopping Center.

Everyone liked the idea of getting to vote on the final design but everyone had a different opinion on which design should win.

Katie Stone liked on of the more geometric designs.

"That's probably the one that is the most eye-catching to me," she said.

On the other hand, Josh Covel liked the one with the tree.

"I like the design, and I like the tree," he said.

Using the link in this story you can vote for your favorite design.

Voting closes on June 30.
