Cook Street Bridge | City of LaCrosse, WI

When the City of La Crosse was in need of a new bridge to span across Isla La Plume Slough from Cook Street to Isle La Plume Island, they turned to Knight to provide design and structural engineering services. The bicycle/ pedestrian bridge that Knight designed matches the park setting, and connects to trails and City streets, inviting pedestrian traffic to and from the Island park at the beginning of the Mississippi. While intended as a pedestrian bridge, the structure was designed to serve as a temporary vehicle bridge in emergency situations.
