  • Plans moving forward for NW Expressway pedestrian bridge

    City Council will vote on Tuesday to move towards final plans and installation of a large pedestrian bridge over NW Expressway.

    The location would be just southeast of Wilshire Boulevard and tie together bike and walking trails and provide access to future Bus Rapid Transit lines that are planned for the expressway corridor.

    Access to the bridge would be through steps but also a ramp system for the disabled and cyclists. Included in the project is the construction of trail exertions.

    Total cost is estimated at just over $3 million and funding would come from general obligation bonds.

    Several design concepts had been previously presented, but the recommendation is for “The Expressway”, a lighted chevon that reflects cars from the '40s, '50s and '60s.

    If approved by the council, the 130-foot bridge would start construction in Fall 2020.
