Fulfilling a California Public Utilities Commission requirement a pedestrian bridge is being constructed across Harbor Drive at Park Boulevard. When complete, the stylized bridge will appear to sail into San Diego’s skyline as it unites downtown’s urban core. Designed to be one of the longest self-anchored pedestrian suspension bridges in the world, the iconic structure will:
- Realize the 100-year vision to link two important regional assets: Balboa Park and San Diego Bay
- Reopen Harbor Drive at Park Boulevard
- Provide a safe pedestrian crossing over Harbor Drive and existing train and trolley tracks
- Add public open space
Located next to PETCO Park, home of the San Diego Padres, the bridge will safely connect ballpark visitors and Convention Center guests across Harbor Drive. It will also connect the 2,000-space Port of San Diego parking garage with Park Boulevard. CCDC continues to plan for an at-grade crossing that will include pedestrian barriers and enhanced safety crossing technologies thus improving traffic circulation and access to and from the waterfront and Barrio Logan.
