The Lexington Pedestrian Bridge project consisted of two new pedestrian bridges; a 210 ft steel span over a railway, and a 120 ft steel span over the roadway. The steel used is specifically designed to rust, which both reduces maintenance and adds a great earthy color. Given the large weight of these bridges, the concrete abutments had to be significant.
