Corredor Cultural Chapultepec is a pedestrian-only overpass that could forever change a road whose history dates back to 1532

Mexico City may soon host an innovative solution to both its traffic and pedestrian traffic with an elevated park and walkway located above the Avenida Chapultepec. The 0.8-mile walkway, Corredor Cultural Chapultepec, would form a structure similar to the upper deck of a two-level traffic bridge, and consist of a set of walkways, bike paths and parks.


The idea proposed bears a close resemblance to the underline highway proposed for Miami. Both concepts use the same two-level design and are built to encourage more foot and bicycle traffic. The only difference is the order: Mexico city wants the walkers on the top, while Miami wants the walkways shaded on the bottom.
