Overview

The Second Street Bridge is also known as the Quadripod Bridge because of the four steel support tubes which meet at the top to form a unique bridge design. Although cable stayed bridges are a common modern bridge design, the design for this bridge is unique for North America.

The name of this bridge was recently dedicated as the Robert N. Stewart Bridge (former Columbus, IN Mayor).
