Making the journey from point A to point B

a remarkable commuter experience

The city of Lincoln, Nebraska, is home to the nationally recognized University of Nebraska football team. Wanting to leverage televised football events, the city was seeking a memorable and visible representation of the city with this project. The ability to generate aerial views of this artistic expression of the city was a must.

LED lights illuminate the 18-foot-tall letters on 43 tons of steel.

 

When viewed from the sky, the 611-foot-long bridge spells “Lincoln.” Designed by Dimensional Innovations, the bridge letters include 43 tons of steel, use 6,000 LED lights, and serve as a centerpiece to a restored part of Lincoln. While many see a pedestrian bridge as simply utilitarian, the city uses this structure to connect and inspire its citizens.

The 18-foot-tall letters appear on the sides and top of the bridge. To further their impact, DI chose quotes from famous Nebraskans to associate with each letter to emphasize and celebrate the city’s rich, cultural history. During the day, the letters are illuminated by the sun; by night, they light the bridge, turning an otherwise large steel structure into a beautiful landmark. What was once a cold, utilitarian structure is now a space that connects people to ideas and history, memorable for generations to come.
