Photographer's Note

The triangular truss Tempe Town Lake Light Rail bridge was completed in 2006. Artistically, this bridge contributes to a pattern language with the existing three bridges over Tempe Town Lake. The two highway bridges are based on the arch while the historic railroad bridge (seen to the left in this picture) is a Pratt truss. The light rail bridge is an innovative triangular truss. The four bridges represent three basic geometric shapes: the circle, the square, and the triangle. Each is reinforced individually yet interact in a collective conversation.

This bridge incorporates integral LED structure lighting that includes interactive responses to passing trains, complimenting environmental conditions (temperature, sunsets, etc.) and seasonal/social events.

This photo was taken from the south, and the more popular, side of the lake. Its popularity is most likely due to the proximity of housing, offices, and Arizona State University’s main campus.

ISO 200, f/8.0, 1/250, 70mm
