  • Brief Description

    The Redbud Trail Bridge Project has been years in the making and is the result of increasing strains on the bridge due to flooding, population growth, the number of vehicles on the road and heightened use. The project is currently in the 60% design phase. Completion of the bridge should occur in 2025. The bridge, built in 1948, does not meet current roadway standards for traffic volume, bicycle and pedestrian amenities. The bridge is also nearing the end of its operational life. The new bridge will handle current traffic requirements, and provide enhanced multimodal transportation options such as bicycle and pedestrian access.


    Construction of the new bridge is designed to handle current-day loading conditions, increasing vehicular traffic, and increased safety and multi-modal transportation options for bicyclists and pedestrians.


    The community has stated a preference for the artwork being inspired by the history and nature of the surrounding site. Artists who are familiar with local ecology and/or the Redbud Ilse user community are highly encouraged to apply.
