Description: 

A bridge spans a small pond and stream, becoming a metaphor for connections with the past and future and reflecting on the life cycle of the salmon and the remarkable journey they endure. Inspired by and incorporating railway tracks and ties, the bridge floor has multiple bronze phrases relating to salmon, fishing and hatcheries inlaid into the wooden floor.
