Irvine Boulevard Pedestrian Bridge
PROJECT LEADER

COMPLETION DATE

CLIENT
Ware Malcomb
PROJECT TYPE
Civic

This project is a pedestrian/cycling bridge that spans Irvine Boulevard in Irvine, CA, uniting two family-oriented neighborhoods with an extensive park and trail system. While the City of Irvine created the bridge for safe pedestrian and bicycle passage from point to point, it is also a destination. The bridge provides a glowing beacon for its travelers at night, with strategically located lighting to illuminate the grand vertical gateways and guide walkers, runners, and bikers along the pathway.

With Irvine priding itself as the safest city in the country, the bridge has as much functional purpose as aesthetics. The challenges were to provide an exciting new walkway between the neighborhoods more unique than former bridges while still meeting the strict security requirements of the city. With a simple, elegant – and fun - lighting scheme, the new neighborhoods have an iconic element that promotes walking and cycling, encouraging healthy, active families. The architecture was done by Ware Malcomb, with Electrical Engineering by tk1sc and lighting design by StudioK1.
