Do you have any comments or questions about the bridge design for the Ward-to-Downtown pedestrian bridge?

The selected bridge is a cantilever bridge structure made of weathering steel with a lookout area and bench on the southern side. The north bridge railing is a solid structural beam while the south side is a light cable mesh railing that allows for open views to the river and adjacent heritage assets. Materials selected are industrial in character - weathering steel, concrete, and stainless steel. The cable mesh railing is extended into the landscape area west of the bridge to mark an entry gateway area. The unique design of this bridge comes from the cantilever structure, which can accommodate a wider area in the middle of the bridge open to the south, and requires a solid north side.
