Austin Community College Pedestrian Bridge
Austin, TX United States | 2004
The Gibbs Street Pedestrian Bridge spans Interstate 5 under Portland's Tram System. In keeping with the silver design of the Tram support system, a galvanized coating made the most sense, aesthetically. With the highway system below, sustainability, coating performance, and durability were of utmost consideration in the design. The Gibbs Street Pedestrian Bridge spans 700' over Interstate 5 with a landing on the west side of the bridge which is 5 stories above ground level, which can be reached by either using the elevator or descending the 132-step stairway with rest areas.
