The 4th Street Bridge is a pedestrian bridge located between Branner & Lafayette.

Disclaimer: Please pardon the vulgarity on the "before" photos — this was the landscape that many of our youth make their way to school.

We believe that it is important to show you the reality of the situation, however harsh.


Raul Hluz painted the graffiti-style "East Side" designs which appear on the pedestrian sides of the bridge.

The bridge is a main thoroughfare for pedestrians, bicycles, cars and school buses carrying students to nearby Scott Dual Language Magnet School.

The traffic side of the bridge displays a honeycomb pattern, which references the stream below as well as the structure and community which are hallmarks of a hive.
