A view across one of the three relatively new pedestrian bridges spanning interstate 235 that were part of the 6 year I-235 project that finally looks to be complete!

The bridge design utilizes basket-handle steel arches with clear spans of approximately 230'. Inclined cables connect the steel blue arches to the pre-stressed concrete deck. By selecting a tied arch form, the Iowa DOT was able to keep disruption of traffic to a minimum during construction. An innovative curved screen system is used to enhance security and the appearance of the structure creating a visually appealing experience for pedestrians and bicyclists using the bridge. The resulting series of bridges has created a distinctive form that is unique to the city and the state. These highly visible bridges now act as icons marking the location of neighborhoods and landmarks such as the Botanical Center for travelers along the freeway.
