Why do you say its a "nudist" bridge? Is the Riviera a nudist resort? Are there nude figures painted on the bridge? I don't live out there so I'm not sure what the exact meaning of your description is.

Nudist-colony bridge draws attention

PALM SPRINGS - Venice, Italy, has the Bridge of Sighs. Now Palm Springs has the "bridge of thighs."

A pedestrian bridge that will connect two parts of a nudist resort - while crossing over a busy public street - has drawn national attention since construction began last month.

"I've heard it all: bridge of thighs, naked bridge, nudist bridge, you name it. I'm sure I'm going to hear more of it before it's over," said Stephen Payne, co-owner of the Desert Shadows Inn Resort and Villas.

The 110-foot span, set to open this month, has become an instant landmark. It's the only bridge, except for freeway overpasses, in the Coachella Valley.

"People will eventually look at a picture of it and say, 'Oh, that's Palm Springs,'" Mayor William Kleindienst said.

Passers-by and motorists see only the outside of the bridge. Access will be controlled by a key card.
