William Badrick is a retired architect who wants to upsize public green roofs with his plan for a green roof bridge. Badrick's green roof bridge would cover the Columbia River Crossing bridge being built between Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington.

Badrick’s green roof bridge will reduce the vehicular carbon footprint, and act as a public park for residents. The innovative design deals with stormwater runoff and accommodates light rail, bicycles and pedestrians in addition to car and truck travel.
