Calatrava's "Sundial Bridge" Opens In Redding, California

Santiago Calatrava’s $23.5-million “Sundial Bridge” opened in Redding, California on July 4 weekend. The gleaming white cable-stayed pedestrian bridge, paved with translucent glass and veined granite, spans 700 feet across the Sacramento River. It has a single 217-foot-tall pylon that leans back at a 42-degree angle, creating an upward sweep that supports the bridge deck. The eye-catching structure is drawing record numbers to this normally sleepy town (population 84,000). “It’s having a huge effect,” says tourism director Angela Byrd. “From what I’ve seen there haven’t been less than 100 people on that bridge since the day we opened it.”
