    Hi all,
    Does anyone know of any projects that involved the use of space under the highway? I am working on an urban site and one of the corners that acts as a gateway from the neighboring community is under an elevated interstate. I found this site which is very interesting but not quite what I had in mind:

    Anyone worked with something like this before?

    Thanks much,
    Jonathan Nelsen

    Mission Creek Park in San Francisco is something you should check out. It was covered recently in LAM and here are some photos we have on sitephocus.com – Mission Creek Park

    This month’s LAM has a feature on a new park/ greenway in Houston under a highway system.

    We have done a few skate park plazas under highways and overpasses. Check the following:

    Very cool examples, I have seen more use of underpasses for parking and storage of road maintenance vehicles and supplies, but with enough light and knowledge of its existence, and usable space could definitely be developed.

    While I was not involved in the design phases of the project, on a cross country motorcycle trip I came upon this skate park while wandering around Manhattan. I completely loved how a normally unused space became an obvious ‘home’ for many of the kids in the area. All takes place under the on-ramp to the Brooklyn Bridge.

    Here are a few of my photos…
