The Hope Memorial Bridge stretches nearly a mile across the Cuyahoga River in downtown Cleveland, standing just outside of the ballpark. It first opened in 1932 & was originally known as the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge. Designed by engineers Wilbur J. Watson và Associates and Frank Walker, the bridge was curved at the lower edge of its trusses to lớn give it an arched appearance. The major architectural feature, however, is four massive stone pylons of eight figures representing the Guardians of Traffic, which were designed by Walker và sculpted by Henry Hering. Each Guardian holds a different vehicle including a covered wagon, stagecoach and 1930s automobile.
