The project is called “Over the River.”
The Bureau of Land Management must issue a permit for the project. It is accepting public comments on Christo’s plan and some scaled-down alternatives it developed, but Christo’s team says only Christo’s own plan preserves his artistic vision.
For the project, Christo and his late wife, Jeanne-Claude, envisioned using cables to suspend 5.9 miles of fabric across eight spots along a 42-mile stretch of the river. Opponents have raised concerns over safety, environmental effects and traffic.
