Robert I. Schroder Overcrossing
Pleasant Hill, California | Pedestrian Bridge
Cyclists and pedestrians on the Bay Area’s Iron Horse Regional Trail use the bridge to cross over two roads. The unique curvature of the mesh gives the overpass a modern aesthetic that reflects the unconventional style of the region. It also deters climbing and prevents objects from being thrown over, providing protection to both bridge users and drivers below.
"The mesh makes a pedestrian bridge that crosses over arterial roads and highways that is at best a distraction, and at worst a menacing-looking and ugly element, into a beautiful and inviting element of the overall design."
