The long-awaited Gilman Bridge, which is designed to better connect east and west campuses of UCSD, will open to traffic on February 8, 2019. Spanning gracefully across Interstate 5, the new bridge unites two existing campus roads—Gilman Drive on the west and Medical Center Drive on the east—making it quicker and more efficient to get across campus without using busy city streets.
