The Green Street Pedestrian Bridge will cross over Business 40 in its current location, connecting the West Salem neighborhood with BB&T Ballpark and the new development slated for that area. With its arching structure, this bridge will serve as an artful and iconic western gateway into downtown. Donald MacDonald, the designer for this bridge as well as the Twin Arches, drew his inspiration for the arching form from the oak trees that are ubiquitous throughout the region.
This aspirational and contemporary bridge design will inspire and complement significant economic real estate development both north and south oth Business 40 – creating economic impact around BB&T Ballpark and the West Salem neighborhood. This bridge will become a gateway from the east for both drivers and pedestrians, symbolizing Winston-Salem’s 21st-century aspirations.
