The new Los Angeles Sixth Street Viaduct, completed in 2022, is a transformative infrastructure project that weaves together separated communities to create an interwoven form of the contemporary city. It replaces the original 1932 bridge and unites Boyle Heights to the east and the Arts District and Downtown to the west. The viaduct creates a new urban symbol for LA and brings with it much needed community resources. It evolves the monoculture of a single‐use bridge into an intermodal multiculture welcoming motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians alike. It overcomes the silo effect caused by past infrastructure, countering it with the vibrancy and connectiveness of a “civic structure.” Image credit: Iwan Baan
