Now Open: Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge in San Diego's East Village Ballpark District
T.Y. Lin International (TYLI), a globally recognized full-service infrastructure consulting firm, announces that the new Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge has been completed and is officially open. The $26.8-million bridge was constructed to provide a safe, elevated footbridge for pedestrians and bicyclists over busy Harbor Drive and existing train and trolley tracks. Designed by TYLI and, at 550 feet, one of the longest self-anchored, suspension bridges in the world, the new landmark signature footbridge now serves as a southern gateway to downtown San Diego and fulfills the City’s 100-year vision to link two of its important regional assets: Balboa Park and San Diego Bay.
