Newest footbridge

This is the last photo I'll show in my footbridge series. Let me know if you know of other San Diego footbridges you'd like to see. Here are two others that were not in the series that I showed a while ago - the Scripps pedestrian bridge and the San Diego State University pedestrian bridge. The above photo is of the David Kreitzer Lake Hodges Bicycle/Pedestrian Bridge which just opened last month. It is a stress ribbon bridge, a skinny thing - 990 feet long and 12 feet wide. A very cool bridge, um, except the outdoor temperatures are pretty hot right now - 85-90 degrees.
Here is the view looking to the west of the bridge. There are two entrances - one is just off the 15 freeway at Pomerado Road and the other is at the end of a mile long hike that starts near Sunset Drive and Via Rancho Parkway.

The ribbon-bridge pics are nice, but so far from downtown, I wonder if you could link a google-map reference ?
There are two pedestrian bridges across Interstate Five, one in Middletown and one from Balboa Park (in the parking lot near th old hospital) to San Diego High.
There's another in my neighborhood crossing route 15 at Landis street.

Hi Richard, Thanks for the tips on the other may take me a bit to get there and take photos.
Here's a Google map link of the Lake Hodges pedestrian bridge. I hope you get to see it sometime, it is worth the drive.,+san+diego&sll=33.050832,-117.064047&sspn=0.052302,0.079479&ie=UTF8&ll=33.055869,-117.07139&spn=0.052299,0.079479&z=14
