The Shoreline Interurban Trail Bridges form a vital community link allowing pedestrians and bicyclists to safely cross Aurora Avenue and 151st Street. The Interurban Trail, part of a regional park trail system, utilizes the historic Interurban Trail Trolley Line route from Seattle to Everett, WA. The two pedestrian bridges (one an arched gateway) feature programmable LED lighting (with laser cut panels), blue-glass and stainless steel-mesh screen walls (recalling trolley car window patterns), "rail-to-shore" concrete patterning (celebrating Shoreline's civic identity through its history and its proximity to water), and a connecting linear park including rain harvesting and a variety of native plants placed to recall Shoreline's historic orchards. Public Art is integral the project. The collaborative effort includes a Public Art and Urban Design Plan/Menu of Opportunities authored by Vicki Scuri with the Design Team. The Team collaboratively implemented many of the plan's design concepts.
