What do you see here? A tunnel like passage? Well… it’s a bridge but with a visual surprise in store for visitors. When viewed from an angle away from the passage, the bridge can be seen to be installed with some independent rectangular structures at intervals. However the moment anyone passes through the bridge, every structure comes together to offer an amazing spectacle like you see above.
The High Trestle Bridge is in Iowa and runs across the the Des Moines River Valley connecting local communities. Serving as an emblem to historical facts, linking 25 miles of High Trestle trail, the bridge has seen many a renovations ultimately shaping into this structure we see here. The pedestrian and bicycle bridge is said to be 13 stories high and one of the longest in the USA.
Snyder & Associates of Ankeny were involved in the architecture while the artwork installation was conceived and made possible by RDG. Lighting has been done by Waldinger Corporation of Des Moines.
