The Harmon pedestrian bridge spans Harmon Avenue connecting a three-storey retail center to the Crystals building which is part of the new MGM City Center complex. The bridge allows pedestrians to cross Harmon Avenue on the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard without worrying about vehicle traffic at one of the main access points to the Strip.
The bridge includes stairs, elevators and escalators on both sides of Harmon Avenue. The bridge is an assembled steel structure supported on concrete piers. Vibration was an issue due to the long span of the bridge and required the incorporation of tuned mass dampers.
