AECOM has designed a pedestrian bridge supported by a single arch in Chicago, which encourages cycling, skating and walking.
The crossing connects the Bronzeville neighbourhood with the lakefront, optimising views overlooking Lake Michigan and downtown Chicago. The landmark has become a sculptural backdrop between the nearby park and the train station.
The bridge is 1,500-feet in length, with long inclined arches on sweeping curves.
The structure has a complicated geometry, which created challenges to design, fabricate and erect over active railroad tracks and a major highway carrying 100,000 vehicles daily.
