Christopher S. Bond Bridge





The Christopher S. Bond Bridge, a landmark addition to the Kansas City skyline, is a distinctive cable-stayed bridge that delivers a dramatic visual experience, day or night. Uplighting of the cable arrays and the single A-frame pylon emphasizes the height and scale of the bridge, engaging both highway travelers and observers on the shoreline.  Along the edge girders, programmed color-changing LED panels execute dynamic video content for a nightly light show that celebrates the seasons, holidays, and significant local events.
