9.1.7 The Bridge

The rail bridge is a dominant feature and the major gateway into downtown. Many communities are turning bridges like this into an opportunity to implement color into their nighttime environment. Incorporating LED lighting that provides a range of color options could be cast upward onto the underside of the bridge to enhance the perceived safety for a pedestrian passing under the bridge when it is dark out. It would also make the bridge an iconic and memorable feature in downtown, properly denoting a prominent gateway and activating the intersection of White and Roosevelt.
