CURRENT PHASE: Design
Anticipated Construction Completion: End of 2019
Gilbert is planning to build a new pedestrian bridge located near north Neely Street and the Western Canal Trail. This bridge will serve as one of the gateways to the Heritage District for citizens who live west of the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) and a safe crossing over the railroad tracks for those biking, walking and riding the Western Canal Trail.
We’re currently in the design phase for this project and are looking for community feedback regarding the three concepts below. The overall goal is to keep an industrial feel to the bridge. Please take a couple of minutes to review the design concepts below and then provide your feedback on your favorite design here.
Inspired by water and the delicate nature of riparian grasses, this concept looks at manipulating steel to create a sense of movement through water and wind.
Inspired by the architectural forms common in the Art Deco movement, this concept blends rusted and painted steel with the forms and geometries of this period.
Inspired by the local context and railroad heritage of the area, this concept highlights some of the iconic shapes and imagery of the train and rail.
The final design is scheduled to be completed by the end of September 2018. At the time, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) will take over the construction process.
