Suburban Skyview: RiverEdge Park Pedestrian Bridge sets tone in Aurora's historic downtown
RiverEdge Park Pedestrian Bridge helps Aurora live up to its "City of Lights" moniker.
The 900-foot curved suspension bridge, which opened last June, has a vibrant color-changing LED system that brings the bridge to life during major events and holidays.
A critical part of the city's master plan to redevelop the historic downtown district, the bridge has a central beam, or "spine," from which the two pathways cantilever on either side.
The slick design creates a dynamic crossing that draws attention to the Fox River and the downtown Aurora skyline.
The bridge crosses Blues Island, where exotic plants were replaced with native plants to form a unique urban wildlife habitat.
The bridge is the epitome of nature and technology intertwined.
