The Matute Remus Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge located in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. This work is part of a system of bridges located on the Lázaro Cárdenas causeway, at the intersection with López Mateos Avenue, one of the busiest in the city and which also crosses the four central municipalities of the Metropolitan Area of Guadalajara.
The architectural proposal of the Matute Remus Bridge always considered the nocturnal print of the bridge, for that reason, a lighting program was developed that considered ludic criteria like the change of color and intensities of light, a sequence that reveals the different parts of the structure: Linear park, driveway and raised bridge.
Several citizen organizations and neighbors opposed the construction of this bridge. The reasons were varied: from the lack of a comprehensive urban mobility plan, its cost, its construction without having previously done a citizen consultation and the lack of permits required for its construction.
