Salina's Ohio Street entryway brought
together a design team of engineers and
architects, bridge builders, landscape
designers and artist, Vicki Scuri.
Together the team worked with the City and
Union Pacific Railroad to create a much
desired vehicle and pedestrian overpass.
The organizing principal in the gateway
design is Salina's railroad history.
Design elements in the required fencing,
pedestrian path, bridge structure,
lighting and landscaping all relate to
railroads and the cadence of trains,
providing a rhythmic progression of
experiences as one enters or departs
Salina. Names of local trains that
operated on tracks below are integrated
into the protective barrier wall.
