Presenting: Lincoln, Neb.’s showstopping pedestrian bridge
Designed by Kansas City company Dimensional Innovations (DI), the 611-foot-long pedestrian bridge spells “Lincoln” and connects Pinnacle Bank Arena with parking areas in Haymarket Park. The 18 foot-tall letters appear on the sides and top of the bridge. Associated with each letter is a corresponding value or principle. DI used quotes from Nebraskans – famous, historic or living – to celebrate the city’s rich cultural history. For instance, the letter “i” in Lincoln has a quote associated with integrity.
The bridge letters include 43 tons of steel, uses 6,000 LED lights and serves as a centerpiece to a restored part of Lincoln. While many see a pedestrian bridge as simply utilitarian, the city uses this structure to connect and inspire its citizens.
