Jennifer Street Bridge

The City of San Luis Obispo commissioned RRM Design Group to design a pedestrian and bicycle bridge across the Union Pacific Railroad near Jennifer Street in San Luis Obispo. RRM incorporated planning solutions, extensive public outreach, and historic railroad context into the design and the location of the bridge. Funded in part by a Proposition 116 state grant, the bridge connects with the San Luis Obispo Rail Trail regional bike path (connecting bike/pedestrian commuters to downtown), fits schematically with the historic Railroad District, complies with ADA accessibility requirements, and coordinates with Union Pacific Railroad on operational/right-of-way acquisition and leasing issues. RRM also provided topographic survey in metric units for the bike path and pedestrian overpass at Railroad Square.
