Plain vanilla Caltrans bridges are out, iconic gateway bridges are in.
From the Pasadena Star-News, in anticipation of the construction of the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension, artists are being asked to submit proposals for the design of a bridge over the 210 freeway that will serve as an “iconic statement and a gateway to the San Gabriel Valley.” The 739-foot bridge will span the 210’s eastbound lanes near the Santa Anita Avenue exit, welcoming drivers and future Foothill Extension riders to the San Gabriel Valley.
The Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority will be accepting artists’ qualifications and submissions at the link below until April 28.
