Connecting visitors with their ideal travel experiences in Tucson and Southern Arizona.

The Luis G. Gutierrez-Cushing Street Bridge celebrates the reunification, both socially and physically, of Tucson’s west side communities and downtown area. This iconic structure, which is the first multi-modal (modern streetcar, vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian) public works project in Arizona, creates a destination and attraction as well as a critical linkage for parts of Tucson that were previously isolated.

Complex architectural and artistic features are incorporated into the design, from the steps leading from the deck sidewalks to the multi-use path below at all four corners of the bridge. Bridge, step and wall railings made of pre-cast concrete are designed to replicate historic balusters. Structural shade canopies over the promenades and sidewalk deck incorporate 12 local historically significant events and create an interactive experience for the visitor.
