Spectacular Sundial Bridge spans Sacramento River in Redding, California


The Turtle Bay Sundial Bridge celebrates the river in the most poetic way. The pedestrian and bicycle bridge crossing the Sacramento River was designed by Santiago Calatrava, world renowned architect, engineer, and artist. The glass-decked Turtle Bay Sundial bridge is the centerpiece of the area’s extensive regional trail system, and has become the urban icon for the northern part of the state. The cantilever-spar, cable-stayed bridge forms a large sundial. It spans 700 feet and was completed in 2004 at a cost of $23,500,000. The McConnell Foundation, a private, independent foundation established in Redding in 1964, generously funded the majority of the bridge’s cost. Additional funding was provided by the City of Redding, as well as the US Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration.
