Westside Gateway Bridges: Guadalupe Street

The Westside gateway bridges (Guadalupe, Buena Vista, and Commerce) color palettes were created by San Antonio-based artist Rubio. Colors presented honor hues found throughout the Westside at sunrise, sunset, and of the Virgin Guadalupe’s ‘tilma’ or cloak. The painting of the underpass columns at the Guadalupe Street Bridge kicks off capital improvements in the Zona Cultural District with the goal of increasing accessibility between downtown and San Antonio’s historic Westside.

The planned improvements enhance the western boundary of the Zona Cultural District, an area that encompasses many historic locations between Main Plaza and North Salado Street. The entire project, with all three bridges painted, is set for completion in 2023.
