You beat me to it Ecofem - I was hoping to get around to posting something on this sometime today. I love the nickname they've given this thing - "Bridge of Thighs"

I think its a neat idea and how they have made it look attractive while still...protecting folks from prying eyes.

Hopefully the canvas part of the "canvas and steel structure" will stand up to the elements.... otherwise you may have problems with traffic jams!

Cool bridge!

The Burj Al Arab in Dubai has an entire facade made of double layered fabric/membrane. Tests have shown that despite the greuling conditions (sandstorms, excessive heat, etc) that it works well in desert environment. Palm Springs should have similar conditions... and is actually in a better position to use fabrics because they don't have to contend with the salt air like Dubai.

Here's a photo of the fabric wall at the Burj Al Arab... it's the colorful portion....
