High-speed rail bridge art concepts

Thanks to Jean Dresden:

On May 14, High-Speed Rail had a workshop to develop visual design guidelines. The committee looked at lots of sample art.

Here are some possible concepts for the bridge that would cross I-280 near Bird which is on the left side of this picture.

Check out what a plain viaduct would look like from the Bird Avenue on-ramp to I-280 southbound.

The bottom of the viaduct is 65 feet above Bird Avenue. The electric wires extend 27 feet above the deck.

You can look at other art work in the High-Speed Rail library.
