The Vancouver Land Bridge is one of seven sites of the Confluence Project. Designer Maya Lin, who designed the Vietnam Memorial, was commissioned by Native American tribes and civic groups to create a series of seven art installations along the Columbia River Basin created to evoke the history of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. These installations range from the border of Idaho to the mouth of the Columbia River.
The Land Bridge provides an important pedestrian and bike connection between the walking routes along the Columbia River with the historic sites that were blocked by Highway 14 and railroad tracks. Beyond access, it takes walkers on an artistic journey that links the River, Land and People.
