Center Street Bridge

Des Moines, Iowa

The Center Street Bridge links the east and west sides of Des Moines at the northern edge of the Principal Riverwalk loop. The 400′ bridge has twin-curved decks to separate bicycle and pedestrian trail users. Anchored on the north by a signature pedestrian bridge at the Center Street Dam and on the south by the renovated railroad bridge south of Court Avenue, the river walk will tie together numerous amenities that line the river’s banks, creating one cohesive riverfront experience.
