In the summer of next year, two new bridges are expected to be built between Holt Hall and the Physical Science Building.

The project was added to the Campus Public Arts Committee last week, wrote Lorraine Hoffman, vice president for business and finance.

There are eight existing bridges used to cross Big Chico Creek, which divides the northwest and southeast sides of campus.

Artwork from students and faculty in the art and art history departments will be displayed on the bridges, Hoffman wrote.

The costs and timeline for construction of the bridges have not been determined, and specifics have not been released to the campus.

More details about the project should be available around April or May, Hoffman wrote.

“This project is still in the nascent phase of development,” she wrote.
