OPENING THIS SUMMER

Construction crews are elevating the bridge, creating a new 700 ft long public crossing, widening the structure with steel cantilevers off both sides, adding a second level, attaching railings, and bringing utilities and all the creature comforts we expect from a world-class entertainment destination and trailhead.
