Pedestrian Bridge Reconnection

500 Mero St - Pedestrian Bridge Rendering version 1

With the state’s new office building nearing completion, the City has received numerous questions about the fate of the pedestrian bridge crossing over Wilkinson Blvd, which has connected Riverview Park and Bellepoint to downtown Frankfort. Recently the City discussed the specific plans for the bridge as part of our ongoing relationship with the state throughout this entire project. Because the bridge will now need to connect to the pedestrian system at ground level, the state’s contractor will build a stairway and install an elevator later this year. The elevator is important as this ensures that the pedestrian connection is available 24/7 and is an ADA compliant connection between downtown, the park and Bellepoint. See project renderings below for a sneak peak on what the project will look like when completed!
