Rattlesnake Bridge

Thu, 2016-09-01 10:19 -- Don Ball

With shiny fangs and a winding tail, a huge diamondback rattlesnake serves as a bicycle and pedestrian bridge over Broadway Blvd. at the Barraza-Aviation Parkway, just east of downtown Tucson, another example of the city combining public art with city-improvement projects. This eye-catching structure, designed by artist Simon Donovan, won an award from the Federal Highway Administration as one of the nation's best road projects. A hollow stomach serves as the covered bridge.
