Bridge · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Kuokkala Bridge is a bridge in Jyväskylä, Finland over the lake Jyväsjärvi. When the city of Jyväskylä expanded into Kuokkala, the eastern part of the town, it was deemed necessary to link the city centre to the new neighbourhood through a new bridge.
During the summer of 1977, three main options were considered: a continuation at the bottom of Vaasankatu to Kylmänoro, and two different paths from the southernmost edge of Lutakko, to Ainola and Peltoniemi. The last of these options was chosen on by the city council. The design work started in 1979, the main concern being the muddy lake bottom. The city council approved the new bridge, an arch joining the tip of Lutakko to Peltoniemi in Kuokkala, on.
Work started on the bridge on. The bridge was built from both directions, with the two sides joining on. The bridge was officially named "Kuokkalan silta" on, following a naming competition and a first proposal of "Aallon silta" on. When the 480m bridge was officially opened on, it was Finland's fourth longest road bridge and the longest plate girder bridge.
