Concept Description

The flyover of Lohikoskentie crosses road E4 north of the city centre.

The flyover of Lohikoskentie crosses road E4 north of the city centre. The illumination of the bridge is part of Jyväskylän Porttisillat (Gates of Jyväskylä) project, which aimed to create a gate theme for the city during the evenings, and at the same time improve traffic safety in the area. The idea behind lighting is to alert the drivers arriving the city area. This is achieved through the use of green light, which strongly differs from orange light used to illuminate the environment. Cautionary reflecting bands attached to road lighting posts before the overpass are also hoped to slow down the speed.
