The new Streicker pedestrian bridge will provide a safe pedestrian crossing between the science facilities on both sides of the road and between the dorms west of Washington Road and the athletic facilities to the east. A gateway to campus and community, the bridge is a key feature within the University's planned "science neighborhood." It will span Washington Road connecting the Ellipse walk near the Carl Icahn lab to a new plaza constructed as part of the new Chemistry Building, south of Jadwin Hall.
