Budgeted at $480 million, the new bridge will span 3,500 feet across the Los Angeles River, linking the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles to Boyle Heights. Michael Maltzan Architecture and Hargreaves Associates designed the project, which is highlighted by a series of swooping arches.
The City of Los Angeles also intends to spend approximately $22 million to construct 12 acres of park space below the bridge, creating new connections to the river.
14th District Councilmember Jose Huizar has announced a proposal to create an underground wiring district that could relocate power lines and build new sidewalks in the area surrounding the viaduct.
