A meeting was held on Dec. 13, 2021 to present Northside residents, stakeholders, and the general public with the latest updates on the Davis Avenue Pedestrian Bridge reconstruction in Brighton Heights.
The bridge, which will take the place of the previous one demolished in 2009, will serve to reconnect bicyclists and pedestrians in the Northside’s Brighton Heights neighborhood with Riverview Park.
The design team for the new bridge anticipates final plans for the bridge to be ready by December of 2022 and construction for it to begin around Spring of 2023.
Eric Setzler, Chief Engineer for the Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI), said the next public meeting will likely take place this summer, where the bridge’s design team will present information on the project’s progress and how community feedback was incorporated.
