DESIGN

A cable-stayed bridge with three sets of twin towers was chosen as the design for the new Downtown Crossing to allow for less inhibited views of the Downtown Louisville skyline and cohesion with its urban surrounding. The project went to great lengths to seek and gauge public input to help determine many design features and aesthetics of the entire project, which included everything from gateways into historic areas to landscaping. The images on this page provide a glimpse of the design elements for the Downtown Crossing.
