Rosales + Partners design the Pedestrian Swing Bridge in Wisconsin 

The pedestrian swing bridge will be a cable supported bridge with a clear span over the Sheboygan River. The bridge will have two points of rotation marked by 50’ tall steel towers. Its overall width is 12’ with a clear span of 220’ between the towers. The bridge follows an S curve in plan to create an attractive path and view corridor that smoothly connects entry points to the crossing which are not aligned. The proposed walking surface will be hard treated wood planks for lightness and pedestrian appeal. Bridge railings will be curved in profile and very transparent to allow for uninterrupted views of the harbor and lake. This will be an iconic, light and elegant bridge that will become a symbol for the city of Sheboygan.

Structural engineers: Schlaich Bergermann und Partner of Stuttgart, Germany
