The North Ninth Gate­way is one of two city entry­way projects. It is located at the inter­sec­tion of North Ninth Street and Inter­state 70. North Ninth Street was the orig­i­nal north­ern entry­way to down­town Salina. The Gate­way is part of a larger entry­way project that gives access to the town, yet keeps in con­ti­nu­ity with the nearby green-ways, bicy­cle paths, and trails.

This project involved the retro­fit of an exist­ing bridge; replac­ing the median and adding 15 col­or­ful Selux Corral Columns (“light sticks”) that are angled at 65 degrees. The eye-catch­ing angled pole design of the Corral Columns criss­cross acti­vat­ing the rail­road pat­terned” brick median cre­at­ing a graphic sculp­tural symbol that is vis­i­ble for some dis­tance. The art­work also high­lights the small creek that crosses the inter­state which is often over­looked due to all the trucks, stops, and motels along the inter­state.

Selux Corral Columns create a unique, engag­ing form that acti­vates the median with uni­form light­ing. The columns were chosen for their sleek design, dura­bil­ity, and abil­ity to inte­grate archi­tec­tural forms and land­scapes.

  • Corral® by Selux is a diffuse family of luminaires consisting of columns and bollards. The protective Corral® rings around the diffuse polycarbonate shielding add a decorative feature, and can be selected in a variety of lit section heights. For columns, choose from a straight or tapered pole with an overall height up to 16 feet.
