  • Honor Award, 2020 American Council of Engineering Companies of California (ACEC-CA)

The iconic 325-foot-long bridge structure features a dramatic 125-foot-high concrete and steel mast with steel suspension cables. As a symbol of achievement for the Los Angeles River Revitalization Plan, the signature bridge connects the east side of the Los Angeles River bike path to the Griffith Park trail network on the west.

The bridge is approximately 35 feet wide with two separate paths, one designated for equestrian use and the other shared by pedestrians and bicyclists. The pedestrian/bicycle path uses a hardwood deck and stainless-steel railings, while the equestrian side path consists of horse-friendly rubber pavers and wooden picket railing system. This is the first steel cable-stayed bridge in the City of Los Angeles that was designed for pedestrian, bicyclists and equestrians.
