BERKELEY MARINA BRIDGE
Berkeley, CAStatus: Completed 2013
The original vision for the Berkeley Marina Bridge was to create a bicycle and pedestrian pathway for the City of Berkeley that would unify the waterfront and provide a continuous recreational and educational experience with a series of interest points and activities along it. This spur of the Bay Trail will improve non-vehicular access to the marina and preserve the open vistas and the marina’s image as one of Berkeley’s greatest open spaces. The design of the 140-foot long low-slung pedestrian and bicycle bridge respects the elements of the bay, while its minimal supports lessen the structure’s impact on the wetland ecosystem.
