The green bridge road surface captures energy from solar and the friction of car tires, and stores it in batteries underneath the bridge. The rail of the bridge charges electric cars as they drive by. Underneath the bridge is a farm with plants and trees that are sustained by runoff water from the bridge and lights powered by the batteries. A wind generator powers the streetlights on the bridge and the batteries for the farm lights underneath.
