The Nisbet Road Pedestrian Bridge spans State Highway 51, providing a safe passageway for pedestrian and bicycle traffic between the residential areas on either side. The 260-foot span runs east and west, establishing a link to the north and south bicycle path on the west side of the highway.  Lundquist’s concept draws on the mountain vista to the south, and the bridge’s profile approximates the distant jagged peaks.  The unique safety cage has been made from small-weave galvanized chain link.
