DENVER – The Colorado Center Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge over Interstate 25 was dedicated "A Mindful Bridge" Monday.

The bridge near I-25 and Evans Avenue was the site of an art installation provided by Denver's Public Art Program. Two artists from North Carolina, Jim Hirschfield and Sonya Ishii, installed stainless steel disks on the interior of the bridge. The disks contain quotes about the experiences of people walking and cycling across the bridge.

Hirschfield said when he saw the site of the project he wanted to make crossing multiple lanes of traffic less daunting.

Anyone can visit the bridge and check out the installation. The bridge can be accessed from the RTD parking lot near I-25 and Evans Avenue.
