Tilikum Crossing, Bridge of the People

TilikumCrossingTransitBridgeThema: The longest car-free transit bridge in the U.S. and the first multi-modal project of its kind.
Beschreibung: The Tilikum Crossing Transit Bridge is a critical component of a new 7.3-mile light rail alignment that will connect north Clackamas County, Milwaukie and inner SE Portland with downtown Portland and the regional MAX system. At more than 1,700 feet in length, the bridge will be the largest car-free transit bridge in the U.S., carrying light rail trains, buses, streetcars, cyclists and pedestrians. The bridge will add capacity to the region’s overall transportation system, with more light rail connections creating better access to important destinations and reducing commute pressure on other bridges. As part of TriMet’s public art program for the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Transit Project, artists Anna Valentina Murch and Doug Hollis are creating an aesthetic light program for the new bridge. Lights focused on the cables and piers will fluctuate in response to a stream flow monitor in the Willamette River, echoing the river movement below. The bridge will open September 2015.
Ort: Portland, USA
