North Ninth Gateway
2002-2006, Salina, KS

Vicki Scuri SiteWorks with Wilson & Company: Troy Eisenbraun
Sponsored by City of Salina

North Ninth is one of two City entryway projects. This project involves the retrofit of an existing bridge; replacing the median and adding fifteen colorful lights sticks that are angled at 65 degrees. The light sticks crisscross activating the "railroad patterned" brick median creating a graphic sculptural symbol that is visible for some distance. The North Ninth Bridge crosses a small creek. It would be barely noticeable without the Artwork. The light sticks mark it and provide counterpoint to its surround of truck stops, motels and Interstate 70. North Ninth Street was the original northern entryway to downtown Salina.
