Land Bridge Vancouver, Washington

A pedestrian bridge, crossing the highway near Fort Vancouver and the Columbia River provides a safe crossing, integrated with art and local history.  Part of the Confluence Project, and designed by architect/artist Maya Lin, the Land Bridge crosses over Highway 14 and railroad tracks, linking together two important historic sites. Along the bridge are places to sit and small kiosks illustrating various aspects of local Native American history.
