The Hop Across
Salton Cyclist/Pedestrian Bridge Public Art Project
Abbotsford, BC


The Hop Across---A public sculpture inspired by a bicycle jump sequence that honours the Salton Bridge as a corridor of active transportation---constructed using hundreds of reclaimed aluminum bicycle rims assembled in an arrangement that hops, skips and jumps across the internal combustion beneath.
Brent Bukowski 2018

The Salton Cyclist/Pedestrian Bridge spans the Trans Canada Highway, linking the University of the Fraser Valley with the City of Abbotsford’s core.  Construction commenced November 2017 and the grand opening celebration was held in January 2019.

The bridge was constructed on the ground in the median, and on October 21, 2018, the highway was closed and the bridge was lifted into place.

The following video by David Lavallee documents the lift:
