Tempe Town Lake Light Rail Bridge

The Tempe Town Light Rail Bridge features an innovative continuous 11-span, triangular steel truss supporting each track with a 30 foot wide concrete deck featuring a cast-in-place, seven-inch-thick 5,000-psi reinforced concrete.

The Tempe Town Lake Bridge is a steel bridge that is 1,530 feet long and spans Tempe Town Lake adjacent to the historic Union Pacific steel truss railroad bridge. Both simple and elegant, it provides pedestrians and boaters with a grand view of the historic Southern Pacific and Mill Avenue bridges.
